Get a unique opportunity to build your skills as an entrepreneur, and work in diverse teams applying technology for the benefit of people, society and the world.

This entrepreneurship programme is designed to drive innovation through diversity, bringing together students from varied backgrounds – from humanities to business studies, and from engineering to social science – to create solutions that make a difference.
Throughout this 2-year entrepreneurial journey, you will accelerate your learning through doing. Academic learning and hands-on training combine to support your transformation into a technology entrepreneur. You will be part of a team working together in an all-in-one campus equipped with world-class research facilities and your own team start-up lab.

Regardless of your academic background, you will become more fluent and literate in transformative technologies such as AI, machine learning, IoT, and blockchain throughout the programme, and graduate with a Master of Science, Technology Entrepreneurship (cand.tech).After graduating, you will be able to bridge market and technology to create social and sustainable impact and apply innovation processes to any organisation.

Study programme focus

The 2-year graduate programme will develop your entrepreneurial capabilities in a way that goes beyond the standard emphasis on knowledge acquisition and studying based on defined curricula. You will build competences through acting, creating, reflecting, and adapting, which will make you fit for the future.The core structure of the programme combines real-world start-up ideas and technologies with courses on the fundamentals of entrepreneurship, ethics, personal development, and sustainability. Multidisciplinary teams are mentored throughout the programme by entrepreneurs, start-up coaches and faculty with entrepreneurial expertise and experience.Start-up ideas and technologies may come from various sources: 
  • You or your start-up team
  • DTU inventions or patents
  • Industry or big science facilities
During this 2-year graduate programme, you will select and validate ideas, develop technical solutions, explore and define your role in a start-up, and get the opportunity to experience a semester abroad at a leading entrepreneurship institution. Throughout the entire programme you, along with your team, will build a start-up.This programme blends traditional ‘for profit’ with progressive ‘for purpose’ business models, creating technology-based solutions to societal challenges. The entrepreneurship programme will have its own dedicated space in DTU Skylab for all teams, providing you with access to a state-of-the-art innovation hub.
