Think like a Start-up

Applying entrepreneurial mindsets and practices to drive positive impact

Kursnummer: STR-116

Trainingsinhalt

Startups have built a vast body of knowledge and experience in dealing with uncertainty and change. By complementing creativity with discipline, focus and curiosity, they are a major force in redesigning industries. However, the factors of their success are not limited to tech businesses. As leaders in other industries, civil society and the public sector are facing a fast paced and interconnected world, they can apply strategies and processes of startups just as well.

Think like a Startup aims to transfer approaches used by startups into other contexts. Building upon the insights made in hubs like San Francisco, Tel Aviv, Dublin and Berlin, we look into the black box of startup success and help participants to build on entrepreneurial mindsets and practices for positive impact. This workshop will be held in English language.

Was mich antreibt: Zusammenhänge zu verstehen, Synergien möglich zu machen, Wandel zu gestalten, Verantwortung zu leben und bewusst zu machen

Was ich mit diesem Kurs bewegen will: Gemeinsam mit Multiplikatoren soziale Innovationen verbreiten und realisieren, sodass Menschen, Organisationen und unsere Gesellschaft das Potenzial kommender Veränderungen nutzen können.

Was ich mitbringe: In meiner fortlaufenden Dissertation zu dualer Führung an der Rotterdam School of Management vertiefe ich derzeit mein theoretisches Wissen zu Leadership und Organizational Behavior. Durch einen Schwerpunkt auf sozialer Netzwerkanalyse baue ich dabei auf den methodischen Fähigkeiten aus meinem Mathematikstudium auf. Meine wissenschaftlichen Einsichten ergänze ich mit der praktischen Erfahrung und Intuition, die ich bei der Gründung und dem Aufbau zahlreicher Initiativen im Kontext von Musik, Gesundheit und Migration und Flucht gesammelt habe.
