Head of Ideation & Incubation (re-post) at Copenhagen School of Entrepreneurship

Copenhagen School of Entrepreneurship (CSE) exists to empower students in unleashing their entrepreneurial potential. It is the unit of practical and applied entrepreneurship at CBS that engages in preparing students to be business ready.

Besides the incubator and the acknowledged Go Grow Accelerator Programme, CSE runs a range of educational and entrepreneurial activities and events.
