Today I want to share with you one of the best initiatives regarding european entrepreneurship that I’ve seen in a long time.
Stanford University has in fact developed an awesome seminar series about european entrepreneurship and innovation. The program, called “European Entrepreneurship & Innovation Thought Leaders Seminar” is directed by Burton Lee, a visionary professor and general vc and technology startups expert.
It is a weekly lecture series and is offered each Monday afternoon (4:15-5:30pm) in Skilling Auditorium on the Stanford Engineering campus. It’s open to the public at no charge and all the videos are online for everyone to watch. (Here is the info required to watch the video).
Some of this year’s topics included:”New Venture Funds in Europe”, “French and Irish Entrepreneurs in Software & Cleantech”, “Nordic Entrepreneurs and Venture Spinouts”, “Entrepreneurs & Venture Investors in Spanish Regions”, “Venture Capital and Technology Outsourcing in Eastern Europe” and “Europe in the Global Entrepreneurship Scene”.
I strongly suggest you watch the videos of some of these, there’s some inspiring stuff to take out from them. Also take some time tomorrow and join in to watch the “Venture Capital and Social Media Startups in Spain and Southeast Europe” lecture which will feature Nico Goulet – Managing Partner, Adara Venture Partners and Andrej Nabergoj – CEO & Co-Founder, Noovo. I surely will.
