Resilient, smart and sustainable cities is a comprehensive programme granted by the Erasmus + programme, composed of 5 courses organised by four top European universities/business schools. And we are one of them.
Porto Business School will deliver the course Entrepreneurship for Resilient, Smart and Sustainable Cities.
Cities are faced with multiple societal challenges: they need to deal with the climate urgency, to foster social inclusion and pave the way towards a more resilient economy. Entrepreneurship is a fundamental piece of this puzzle, bringing in new ideas, solutions and imagining new private and public value propositions.
In this course, participants will gain a new understanding and hands-on methodologies to deal with the following questions:
- (How) can startups solve urban problems?
- How can entrepreneurs develop business ventures with scalability potential that are attuned to urban challenges?
- How can cities foster entrepreneurial ecosystems that are instrumental to their missions while steering entrepreneurship and business growth?
The course will run in a b-learning mode, composed by asynchronous learning and seven synchronous online sessions (3 hours each).
Synchronous sessions (Saturday, 9h30 – 12h30):
- May: 14th, 21st, 28th
- June: 4th, 11th, 18th, 25th
Final day for submitting assignments / answering quizzes: July 6th
Participation in the course is free of charge.
