The next HEInnovate webinar in our Autumn series will take the form of a panel discussion. Our contributors will discuss different approaches in supporting micro and small business development from the perspectives of higher education institutions as well as businesses. The panel members will share their experiences exploring the following questions:
How have the notion and mentality of starting a business, especially a family business evolved over time? How can teaching entrepreneurship in academia address the needs of entrepreneurs, especially small and micro businesses?
What are the key benefits as well as challenges of collaboration between the micro and small businesses and HEIs? Have the needs changed over time?
The hour-long webinar will take place on Thursday, the 19th November at 5pm CET. The discussion will be moderated by Rebecca Allinson, a Managing Partner at Technopolis Group and involve three panel members:
