"I have learnt how to apply Design Thinking to business development. Working with two other members and founders of MotionCatch to develop a strategy also helped improve my critical thinking and teamwork skills, as well as how to solve problems with limited time and resources."

”I did not have any doubts that I wanted to become an entrepreneur. It was just a question of finding out, which idea would be the right one to go on with.”. 

Mathis Rosenberg Sørensen

He studied Communication and participated in Innovative Growth. He is now working together with his team behind the startup REDO Neurosystems.

 

“A professor said that 2% of the students participating in this study will someday start your own company. And I thought to myself, that sounds great but it is not going to be me. But then we had a great idea that we thought someone should carry out, and if you don’t do it yourself no one will.”.
