Inspirational Entrepreneurship! Growth is very important at all levels, and sustainable development is a driver in most companies, communities and countries. Stavanger has an entrepreneurial mindset, not only within energy, but also technology, the food industry and others.
ENTREPRENEUR 2020 will focus especially on companies working on green growth and sustainable development. The main concept is to invest time together across industry sectors, research and the student body, making sure everyone is involved and able to deliberate over future opportunities and business.
Design Thinking is design for non-designers. This talk will give you some inspirational takeaways on how you can make changes on how you do business, from a deeper understanding of the clients’ needs to launch of new products and services, much earlier than you have ever experienced before.
