1 Entrepreneurship 2020* * in a nutshell

2 ENTREPRENEURSHIP 2020 * 6th University-Business Forum | Brussels | “It’s about passion based learning” Kalevi “Eetu” Ekman"When I teach in universities I'm not running an incubator. What I'm trying to do is to get students to learn a way of thinking about new ventures that will stick with them for life. And I try to do by having them teach themselves, rather than us teaching at them. Whether they start a company or not, I don't keep score.” Steve Blank “Co-creation is at the heart of Porto Polytechnic. And that’s how we should look at entrepreneurship. We are so many and so different; we can learn so much from each other. Let’s bring interdisciplinary education and work back to the centre of our strategy! Let’s make it happen!” Rosário Gambôa Inspiration

3 ENTREPRENEURSHIP 2020 * 6th University-Business Forum | Brussels | public higher education institution; - 7 schools (engineering, business, education, arts, health, technology, design); - > students; - applied research and development tradition and vocation; - close connection with business (at the ❤ of PT industry); - > 10 years of entrepreneurship support activities; Who are we?

Starting Point

8 ENTREPRENEURSHIP 2020 * 6th University-Business Forum | Brussels | back at our original mission: - we are higher education institutions! - our job is to provide students with the best possible education! - we don’t know how to run incubators, accelerators, hackatons, etc! - other people (including students) do it much better that we do!!!! - interdisciplinary education and work is part of our DNA: - schools need to collaborate! students demand it! - we need to design joint programs, and/or… - … allow students and teachers to move back and forwards! - “tangibles”, manufactured products, technology… that’s our thing! - don’t misunderstand us… we love virtual, software, IT, etc., … - but we are damn good at designing, developing, prototyping and scaling products! - and 95% of the industry around us are also into that!!!
