Innovationmanagement in startups

Funding: Kontaktstelle für Wissens- und Technologietransfer der Universität des Saarlandes
Projektlaufzeit: September 2014 - Juli 2015
Projektbudget: 15.000 Euro


In context of an e-book series on start-ups created by the KWT (Kontaktstelle für Wissens- und Technologietransfer) in cooperation with various internal and external experts, the ISS Chair in Business Administration, esp. Information and Service Systems, addresses topics related to innovation management in start-ups.

The e-book aims to support young entrepreneurs and future founders to deal with innovation management in start-ups. We focus on providing practical content and easily implementable content. The concept is further based on the open innovation approach which allows us to get early feedback from young entrepreneurs and, thus, focuses on their actual knowledge requirements. Furthermore, by the latter approach, we hope to integrate valuable experience of other founders in e-books. In addition, we want to separate ourselves from the mass of available textbooks on innovation management and particularly support start-ups, newcomers and career changers a straightforward access to the topic.
