Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship celebrates 20 years!

CSE 20 years


For 20 years Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship has been having a huge impact on the Entrepreneurship scene at Chalmers and in Gothenburg. Ventures from CSE account for 30% of incubated tech venture revenue in Sweden, making it the most successful startup environment in the country.

Thus, we invite you to join us for the upcoming celebrations on the 17th of November 2017 featuring the following programme:

13:00-14:30 Venture Pitch
Current second year students at Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship pitch their budding startups and compete for a prize apart from eternal honour and glory.

14:30-15:00 Coffee break (incl. sandwich)

15:00-17:00 Jubilee Seminar

What is so special about entrepreneurship? Why is entrepreneurship at Chalmers more about people than companies? Is there a Nordic entrepreneurship?

Welcome to the Jubilee Seminar with short talks, dialogues and surprises!

Participants include the social entrepreneur Sofia Appelgren (Mitt Liv) discussing the impact of empowerment; the entrepreneurial industrialist Carl Bennett (Getinge, Elanders, etc.) discussing the power of learning through practice; the researcher and serial entrepreneur Martin Lackéus (Chalmers) on how to entrepreneurially learn through creating value for others; Professor Pontus Braunerhjelm (Swedish Entrepreneurship Forum) insisting that the entrepreneurs are the transition agents of our time; and Professor Lena Treschow Torell, chairman of Chalmers who is passionate about the new Chalmers-wide initiative ‘Entrepreneurship. By Chalmers’. We will also see many entrepreneurial graduates from the school on stage.
