Spread your wings

Breakout session: Spread your wings

Demonstrates the many faces of entrepreneurship; both as a way of learning, a goal, and a mindset. Here we showcase stories of ideas that grew into businesses (or are just hatching), and ideas that have gathered speed in the process, and are now conquering the world. Visionary and aspiring students and entrepreneurs come together here to share their stories. What does it take to become an entrepreneur? Is entrepreneurship a state of mind? Is this just learning or more of a passion?
