Chalmers research program on Venture Creation Programs (VCPs) has been on-going since the early 2000s. It has generated a number of new insights, such as a new educational philosophy based on value creation, a new IT tool LoopMe for research, teaching and change management, and a number of insights around how to make people more entrepreneurial. Here is an overview of some key resources on these topics:
