How do you adjust your mindset and design your business model to reflect and address sustainability?
This question will be addressed in this workshop following a two-step approach.
First, you will receive relevant theoretical input on sustainability in the context of entrepreneurship as well as input on ideas, principles, and concepts of sustainable business modelling. This will be provided via online videos to be watched by participants before the workshop.
Second, in the workshop – taking place physically in presence at EINS coworking space – we will work with and apply some of these concepts to your own businesses in a hands-on and game-like fashion. After, there is some room for discussion.
The goal is to provide you with knowledge and tools of sustainable business modelling as inspiration for implementation.
