START-UP SCALE-UP BUSINESS

Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences SUMMERSCHOOL

Overview

In this course we work on the dynamics of the life cycle of enterprises, especially the start-up phase and scale-up phase and the bridge between them.

Course content

Start-ups are the engine of growth in our economy. Too many would-be-entrepreneurs get stuck early in the process of starting a business because they think only a certain type of person will be successful.

In this course we work on the dynamics of the life cycle of enterprises, especially the start-up phase and scale-up phase and the bridge between them.

The basics of starting your own business are creativity and entrepreneurship, but in order to move your business forward the art of starting a business is also to focus directly on scaling up. Success factors: Agility, Absorption and Attitude.

In this course we offer you a balance between theory, expertise and practice with topics such as: the triangle, strategy-structure-culture, sustainability, digital economy, earning models, business planning, enterprise risk and finance.

With the world-wide well known innovative start-up scene of Amsterdam as the setting of this course you will learn from the successes and failures of entrepreneurs from both the profit as well as the non-profit sector during company visits or presentations in the classroom.
