The workshops of 2016 are shown below:
How do you start your own business as a student?
Did you ever dream of starting your own business? If so, why haven’t you started your own business yet? To hard? No time? No experience? Do you think that starting your own business is only reserved for smart, commercial or graduated people with a good idea and enough time?
What if I told you that this is not true? Everyone can start a business, even you! Especially you! As a student you have all the knowledge, people and other resources available that you need for this. During this seminar I will explain to you in small steps, how you, as a student, can turn a vague business idea into actual execution.
Are you aware of your own potential? Do you know what makes you tick, and what sets you apart from the crowd? Find out how you can focus on you best assets to enhance your chances of finding the right job for you!
