Together the five of us have established SSES, our joint school devoted to offering our students education, training and inspiration in applied entrepreneurship. So, if you are a student of ours: a special welcome! If not, check out our events and seminars.


What are Workshops?

Workshops come in different subjects, shapes and sizes. There are one-hour dips and there are two-day deep dives. They are created in close collaboration with SSES students and alumni, offering immersive and hands-on developmental training for refining your entrepreneurial skill set.

All workshops are free to attend and are open to all students and alumni at our member schools.

Toolbox Fridays offer a condensed one-hour quick-dip into a specific skill set. Some of these act as a prologue to their Weekend Workshop counterparts while others are standalone sessions. As you may have guessed, they are organised on Fridays, usually in the morning. 

Weekend Workshops offer a two-day deep dive into a specific skill set. To ensure that participants get the most out of each workshop, they are held in small groups of a maximum of 14 participants. Not surprisingly, they are held over the weekend.

Bootcamps are held around the globe together with our partners and friends. Challenging but rewarding they are designed for our most engaged and devoted students. They are sporadic in timing but keeping an eye open for them is certainly worthwhile.

Upcoming workshops

Communicating Innovation
