The Gordon Institute of Business Science (GIBS) and the International Centre for Higher Education Management (ICHEM), School of Management, University of Bath (UK), invite you to a seminar on Developing Entrepreneurial Thinking.

Presented by: Dimo Dimov, Professor of Innovation and Entrepreneurship, University of Bath

Universities and Business Schools can play a central role in improving the art and skills of entrepreneurship. This seminar will focus on the intersection between entrepreneurship, business schools and universities in terms of (1) teaching, (2) supporting, managing and facilitating  and (3) researching entrepreneurship.
It will discuss a framework for thinking about and engaging with entrepreneurship as a future-oriented design effort.  At its core is the intentional space of action (opportunity) as a holistic triangle of person, venture concept, and theory of change, connected by the iterative activities of framing, modelling, and performing.
