A month has passed by and the new students have already gotten their hands dirty. They have completed two feasibility studies, consisting of intensive work where they test business ideas to see if they have potential.
Some of the business ideas that have been tested are internal, while others have external idea owners. Last week the 4th year students searched in every nook and corner to find good ideas here at NTNU. Being part of Norway’s largest university proved fruitful as many professors had ideas they wanted our students to look into.
The work is documented in a short report and presented for the staff, classmates and some externals. What a great way to kick off the NTNU School of Entrepreneurship!
Up next? This Tuesday the 4th year students will be visiting TrønderEnergi to see what exciting possibilities exist within the energy and power domain.
STUD-ENT is a pilot project by the Research Council of Norway (Forskningsrådet) which aims to have more students working on their own commercialization projects after completing their studies at Norwegian universities and university colleges. After evaluating 47 applications and 30 student pitches in front of an expert panel, 22 different startups from across Norway have received 1 million NOK each.
With a total of 8 going to NTNU this year, 5 of these have a direct connection to students at the NTNU School of Entrepreneurship.
Congratulations again to Alva, Astronaut, Hark Technologies and Versor in the graduating class, as well as alumni-led MYPSY. 🙂

NTNUs School of Entrepreneurship as a core part of ENgage can today celebrate, as they have become one out of four winners of SFU (Senter for fremragende utdanning).
According to NOKUT, the status as SFU is awarded to environments with outstanding quality and innovative practices in education, but also with great plans for further development and innovation. An important requirement for the centers is the dissemination of the results achieved and the dissemination of knowledge.
ENgage brings together a range of partners with complementary skills: NTNU School of Entrepreneurship, Nord University Business School, NTNU Experts in Teamwork, NTNU TrollLABS and Spark NTNU. These partners have many years’ experience in different aspects of entrepreneurship education. The expert panel was particularly pleased to see the important position and roles of students and student organisations within ENgage.
NTNUs School of Entrepreneurship is very thankful and are looking forward to work with the partners in ENgage to develop the entrepreneurial environment in Norway, but also abroad. This is mainly done through students as agents of change and NOKUT explains that the international expert panel viewed this as an exciting proposal with the potential to make a significant impact across the whole of Norwegian higher education.
