Thanks to our Swedish partners, the students will also get the LOOPA book about business setup and development.

Стартап-консультант. Експерт і член конкурсної комісії Українського стартап фонду. Більш ніж 5 років досвіду роботи зі стартапами. Підприємництво – це творчість та створення чогось із самого початку. Ти не знаєш, чи вийде щось і яким буде результат. Підприємництво – завжди шлях в темряві з ліхтарем у руці. Ліхтар – це твій досвід та навички. Його сяйво може бути яскравішим або слабкішим, але воно ніколи не розсіє темряву. Саме невідомість і невизначеність створюють можливості для творчості.

Маю 20-річний досвід роботи в ІТ, більше 15 років — керуючий партнер компанії Softjourn. Відповідаю за операційну діяльність і все, що з цим пов'язано. Більшість наших клієнтів з Північної Америки та Європи. Колись читав курси та семінари про бізнес. У викладанні, як на мене, головне — тісна взаємодія з аудиторією. Роботу варто налаштувати так, щоб теоретичний матеріал проектувався на практичний досвід з реального життя різних бізнесів. Вільний час максимально присвячую родині. Люблю спорт. Близько семи-восьми годин на тиждень бігаю. Також подобається читати і слухати книжки, подкасти з лекціями та семінарами.

LOOPA

Run Business Development for Entrepreneurs

Authors: Mariah ben Salem Dynehäll, Anna Lärk Ståhlberg

LOOPA is based on the methodology developed by Drivhuset in collaboration with Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship. This system works in Swedish colleges and helps entrepreneurs set up and run businesses, or look for alternative ways of implementing ideas. Thanks to the support, education, and creative environment, Drivhuset achieves remarkable results — over 1000 companies emerge in Sweden every year.

Gamified methodology: learn to set up a business

Unlike in other games, you won't be competing with your friends. Instead, you're going to team up and develop an idea into a valuable and useful product for clients. You'll go through all the stages of bringing a plan into action, and you'll face the real challenges. That allows you to test the feasibility of your decisions. Your team will understand which skills need improvement and what you lack to get the product close to perfection.

FAQ

  • What does the practical side of the course imply?

    The course includes some fieldwork, meaning some practical tasks that the students would have to perform aside from classes. Those tasks will be aimed at developing personal businesses and achieving real progress.

  • Who is the target audience for this course?

    The course is primarily for budding entrepreneurs who don’t have any functioning and profitable business.

  • Does one need to have an idea or an already running business?

    You don’t need an idea to enroll. If you do have one, you could work on implementing it during the course. If not, we’ll help you come up with something. If you’re already running a business, the course will make sense to you if you’d like to go back to entrepreneurship basics, make an unbiased evaluation of your business, and improve it.

  • How do you select your students?

    We base our choice around motivation and competence. Our goal is to help the students launch their very own businesses, so we pick people who already have experience in some industry. We believe that it could be valuable for getting started as an entrepreneur.

  • I’d like to create the new Facebook, can you help me?

    Our course is more for lifestyle business than for venture startups. But the knowledge and skills would be relevant for startup founders regardless.

  • What results will I achieve by the end of the course?

    You’re going to work through a personal business project and shape an idea of developing it further. You’ll also gain some practical skills to be used for any other businesses and projects.
