Entrepreneurship tables

Interactive Entrepreneurial Round Tables

We talk a lot about entrepreneurship, but what does it really mean to be an entrepreneur? What is required from me to enter this world? How do I take the first step? Where do I begin? What are the difficulties along the way?


​ Beyond the face-to-face lectures, the students will get a personal encounter and direct conversation with known entrepreneurs, to allow them to ask questions, discuss the challenges along the way, and hear at first hand about the meaning, the making, the difficulties. "Entrepreneurship" is no longer a lofty and vague word, we break it down in a way that allow the students to feel that it is not so far and unattainable, but possible for each and every one of them.
