As part of INVENT project, Creative Development Thinking has undertaken a training of 2 target groups from Jordan between 11-22 September 2017. One consists of 16 people, who will then staff the innovation transfer centers (research interconnection and businesses) to be established in Jordan and
the second of 7 students attending Universities and who have developed a business idea and have excelled in the INVENT Entrepreneurship and Innovation Competition.
During the first week, the training was shared by both teams and included suggestions on Innovation, Management, Entrepreneurship and Financing of Innovation Centers, as well as technical visits to CORALLIA, NCSR DEMOKRITOS, IMPACT HUB and INNOVATHENS.
For the second week, it is planned to train the student team on designing and developing a business idea using Business Model Canvas, training on preparing and implementing pitching techniques to find private funding, and preparing a feasibility study.
Also, a visit to the egg incubator (enter - grow - go) is planned for networking students with similar teams from Greece.
