Together on your idea journey
With #YourIdea, Luleå University of Technology and LTU Business offers students, scientists, researchers and employees at the university cost-free and confidential support to develop ideas and innovations.
You don’t have to have an idea when you come to us. We can give you better conditions to generate ideas and then help you define and develop your idea.
At the university, you work or study in an environment where existing knowledge is questioned, new insights emerge and perspectives are broadened. As a student, you may find inspiration for an idea or a solution to a problem that may be the start to your working career.
As a researcher, you may need support in taking your research to the market so it can make a difference, in the real world. You want to take the next step in your academic career. You might want to become an entrepreneur?
With almost forty years of experience in idea and business development, we use proven methods to help you become a world improver, entrepreneur or to start your own business. It all begins with your idea. Your innovation. Your vision.
To help you in the best way, we would like to meet you as early as possible on your journey. Book a meeting with our coaches now, and let yourself be inspired by a few stories from innovators we have helped in the past.
