LC | Entrepreneurship


FIRST MEETING FOR LC Enterepreneurship is MONDAY FEBRUARY 12th from 13.00 - 15.00 hours in ROOM 5411-0543

You probably already know that entrepreneurship is considered to be essential for any organization you will work for, whether it will be an existing company or your own start-up. At the same time, you may want to know more about what entrepreneurship actually entails. Or you may want to assess the feasibility of our own business idea. Or you simply feel that working on your entrepreneurial skills could benefit your personal development and future career. In all these cases, the learning community Entrepreneurship - a collaboration between FEB and UGCE - could be the right choice for you!

The learning community Entrepreneurship offers an opportunity to develop your own entrepreneurial potential. This will be done in two stages. In stage one, you will be introduced to several essential themes of entrepreneurship. These include "the impact of entrepreneurship", "finding your customer", "design thinking", and 'the value proposition at the core of your business". Furthermore, you will start exploring the entrepreneurial ecosystem of the University of Groningen. In stage two, you will continue exploring this ecosystem, and at the same time, start contributing to it by means of your own entrepreneurial project. This project could be related to your own business idea, or to the activities of the Student Entrepreneurship Community Groningen.

For: Ambitious bachelors, master and PhD-students from all programs who want to combine theory with practical experiences
