Crash course in entrepreneurial learning
Host: Manuel Nunes da Ponte
Today, being an entrepreneurial individual is much more than starting your own business. It is profoundly related with mindset and the attitudes and beliefs that everyone can associate with their endeavours. Having an entrepreneurial mindset allows individuals to spot opportunities, seek answers, gather resources and implement solutions regardless of their specific context or institutional constraints. This will be a provocative and accessible workshop underpinned by a number of experiential exercises aiming to involve participants in developing their own entrepreneurial mindset.
