At the end of 2011, the Institute for Entrepreneurship, Technology Management and Innovation (EnTechnon) was established at KIT and Prof. Dr. Orestis Terzidis was appointed as chairholder. The goal was and is to expand research and teaching in the field of entrepreneurship. A well-founded entrepreneurship theory is also a central component in the project “KIT Founders Forge.” The teachings at EnTechnon are based on a four-stage concept:
- Awareness for the topic through informational events for the faculties,
- introduction to central concepts and facts,
- action-based learning and simulation, as well as
- support in the application.
