The entrepreneurial competencies diagnostics model approved by TechnoSpark has been taken as a basis of the Technopreneurship and Technology Transfer track of the Island 10-22 intensive course that will be held in SkolTech from July 10 to 22.
In 2019 more than 1,500 people from 100 universities of Russia, which are interested in a radical renewal of their educational programs and a search for new forms of university development, take part in the Island. The organisers of the intensive course are the NTI Platform and University 20.35, Russian Ministry of Education, Russian Venture Company, Agency for Strategic Initiatives and others.
As a part of a series of visionary speeches on July 13, Denis Kovalevich, TechnoSpark shareholder and CEO, gives a lecture on the serial speculative building model that has been implemented in TechnoSpark since 2012.
On July 14, Ten.Education, the educational startup which is a part of the TechnoSpark Group of Companies, holds a 10-hour business game Build a Company. Sell a Company. The game detects the non-cognitive competencies necessary for business activities, and also allows players to self-identify in their role in the new technology company.
Representatives of the most entrepreneurial universities selected by the results of the business game will spend the day of July 17 on the TechnoSpark territory in Troitsk, getting acquainted with startups and involving themselves in the principles and mechanisms of speculative building of companies.
On July 21, the projects of cooperation between universities and the TechnoSpark speculative building group will be defended along with the signing of mutually binding cooperation agreements for 2019-2022.
In 2019, TechnoSpark has already started joint programmes of entrepreneurial practice together with state universities of Tyumen and Tomsk. Students will defend a diploma based on results of 9-month building of particular technology startups. In the first half of 2019, there was held a series of business qualifying games to which 7,000 students were invited and according to the results of which seven people were selected for an internship. In the 2019-2020 academic year, they will build technology startups in the field of genomics, industrial biotechnologies, composites, wearable electronics, sensorics, and other activities of the TechnoSpark speculative building group.
