The Future of Robot-based Entrepreneurship

A robotisation of society.

Copenhagen Business School (CBS) , Frederiksberg

Onsdag d. 16. marts 2016

Kl. 13:45 - 16:00


The event is arranged in collaboration between CBS’ Entrepreneurship Platform (CBS) and The Danish Society of Engineers (IDA)

Robots are becoming more and more capable, social, interactive, and intelligent. There are lots they can do and will do. Or, should we say, there are lots we can do through them.

This also includes remote diagnostics, healthcare, transportation, and everyday services in our homes. Is this a new domain of entrepreneurship? Will we see a growing market of home-service robots? What problems await solutions via robots, and what business models can make this work? Will Danish design tradition be an advantage in designing robots? These and more questions are central to this cross-disciplinary talk between researchers on robots, IT, and business.

We hope you want to join us, and be part of this fascinating topic of how entrepreneurial robotisation is affecting our society.



The event takes place at CBS, Solbjerg Plads 3, Room: SPs03 Novo Nordisk Aud.

N.B. In case of no show, or cancellation later than March 10th,  you will be charged a fee of 150 DKK.
