João Brites: Entrepreneurship Workshop – Finding our Entrepreneurial Essence

April 15 @ 14:30 16:00

Join us for a reflective workshop about Entrepeneurship Essence by João Brites, the Spring 2024 Social Innovator-in-Residence invited by the ERA Chair in Social Innovation and the DESIS Lab at Nova SBE.

This workshop will propose that we all have an open-ended ability for entrepreneurship and will invite us on a journey to discover our entrepreneurial essence by sourcing from our own life stories. This activity will include a short wake-up exercise, the life story of a social entrepreneur told in the first person, and a series of guided, self-led reflection exercises on the stories we live, the stories we tell ourselves and the entrepreneurial spirit they reveal. This workshop is right for you if you want to explore who you are as an entrepreneur and be a resource for others searching for the entrepreneur within themselves.

The workshop is organized by the DESIS Lab @ Nova SBE and it’ll take place at room B136.

I t is open only to all Nova SBE students.
