How big do you dream? Are you someone that would like to start their own company? Do you have a great idea that you would like to turn into reality, but you just don’t quite know how? Or maybe you have no idea what you would like to do later on and you’re just a bit curious. Then it is a perfect moment to take a look at one of the entrepreneurship evenings. During the entrepreneurship evenings, inspiring, highly achieving individuals will share their success stories and advice.
