Dragons at the University


Dragons at the University is the competition where students from the Master's programme in Entrepreneurship and Venture Lab’s incubator get the chance to pitch their business ideas for venture capitalists – “Dragons”. Last Thursday, eight teams competed in the finals before an audience of students and actors from the local innovation system.
