Identify New Horizons
Discover growth and innovation opportunities for your business and translate gained insights into actionable opportunities. Discover opportunities within new product development, marketing, market penetration and organizational (business) transformation.
Become an Entrepreneurial Leader
Gaining just leadership or entrepreneurship qualities as a business leader is not enough to maintain growth, development and sustainability of a startup. Entrepreneurial leadership combines leadership qualities with the entrepreneurial mindset and spirit. Become an entrepreneurial leader who is willing to take risks, seize opportunities, pursue innovation and be creative in terms of production, interchange and strategy.
Be & Do it Agile / Build Agile into Your Workflow
There is a big difference between reading about agility and actually putting it into practice. Being agile means considering new ways to do things and depends entirely on the human factor. Change yourself first, then your business and team in order to work more collaboratively and to respond rapidly, efficiently, and effectively to change.

Sustainable entrepreneurship has great potential in helping to solve some of our major social, environmental and economic challenges we face. Learn how to aim for the highest sustainability impact, working towards innovations which are good for your business, good for your customer and good for the wider system.
