Nowadays, we hear a lot about entrepreneurship but I think most people don’t really know what it is actually about. I was one of them and that’s why I decided to attend this course at KTH. It was a good opportunity for me to get some knowledge on it.
At the moment, I’m not planning on launching my business but I am glad that this course will be useful for me anyway.
First, I’ve learned a lot about how an idea becomes a business, how a company grows, and so on. I had little knowledge about fund raising for example and it was really an interesting content of the course to me.
Even if we don’t want to be an entrepreneurs, we will likely have interactions with entrepreneurs, and it is always good to know how they work. During the event STHLM TECH, a representative of H&M talked about why they are looking for entrepreneurs to stay innovative and competitive. This example shows one more time that big companies and small ones can be strongly related. Moreover, I had some work experiences in big companies which I enjoyed. Intrapreneurship is for me important for companies and it could be a nice experience, which combines work in big companies launching a new idea. I think the “entrepreneurship spirit” I discovered in this course can be similar doing new projects for companies.
Even if I wasn’t really enthusiastic about going in start-ups events, I actually enjoyed it. It was a new experience for me and listening to all these entrepreneurs was really interesting and inspiring! From now on, I might go to startups events from time to time because I realize how interesting it is and I am more curious about it thanks to this course.
The best part of the course was the simulation game according to me. I learned a lot from this game which was even more detailed and complete than I expected. Moreover, I enjoyed working as a team, thanks team Ace! : )
Making presentations in English, doing a speech for selling your idea were other good experiences of the course.
Finally, it was really interesting to listen to all your ideas!
I wish you all the best! And whether you decide to be an entrepreneur or not, don’t forget to enjoy the music!
