Agile – mindset & entrepreneurial advantage with Adi Sita

Tech Startup School proposes a new challenging meetup. This time we turn to entrepreneurship, agile and how the two connect for creating successful business changes. RSVP here to save your front row spot on February 12, starting at 18:30!

 

About the event

Many times, entrepreneurship implies fear. Which is normal, considering today’s volatile business environment. Agile shifts fear into excitement, creating a business culture where change is welcomed. How? Through a particular mindset that supports the importance of fast adaptation more than a plan, and people more than processes.

We will talk about change and mindset, about productivity, adaptability, and efficiency. We will focus on people who manage processes. All in an interactive way, as entrepreneurship involves courage and a bunch of different ideas and answers to problems, that we can all learn from.

About the speaker

Adrian has over 15 years of experience in IT development, and he is currently focusing on learning as well: eLearning and Agile trainings. The human factor is always central to his actions, so he learned a lot from interacting with various people, being happy to return the favour while teaching.

Event agenda

  • 18:30 – 18:45 – Welcome & registration
  • 18:45 – 20:45 – Agile: mindset & entrepreneurial advantage with Adi Sita
  • 20:45 – 21:30 – Networking

Critical thinking for entrepreneurship

The new year starts with a blast and a new Tech Startup School meetup dedicated to critical thinking for business purposes: better understanding how you make decisions, your business contexts, what influences you, why some actions work or don’t work etc. RSVP here to save your front row spot on January 21, starting at 18:30!

 

About the event

You will train this skill under the masterful watch of Radu Atanasiu. He teaches Critical Thinking for Business and Managerial Decision-Making at Maastricht School of Management, at Entrepreneurship Academy, online, on iversity.org, and in executive education workshops.

Radu is a business angel and the founder of DeBunavoie.ro – a volunteering platform.

Here’s his proposal for the evening:
“What are you counting on?” We’ll start with the famous question posed by Ilie Moromete, a question that is more pressing than ever. Then, we’ll identify the weak points of a business plan, in a practical manner. The Achille’s heel in most business plans which fail is represented by false assumptions that managers don’t even realise they make. We will train our sense of identifying these assumptions, especially for our own business plans, in an interactive session based on case studies, and the business experience in the room.”

 

Event agenda

  • 18:30 – 18:45 Welcome & registration
  • 18:45 – 20:45 – Critical Thinking with Radu Atanasiu
  • 20:45 – 21:30 – Networking

Introduction to Design Thinking

The time for the 3rd Tech Startup School meetup has come, and this time is about Design Thinking. RSVP here to save your front row spot on November 13, starting at 18:30!

About the event

Design thinking is an iterative process which seeks to understand users, challenge assumptions, redefine problems and identify alternative solutions, which were unseen beforehand. It is a solution-based approach to problem-solving while being both a framework and a set of tools.

So, for the 3rd Tech Startup School meetup, our friends prepared a crash course in Design Thinking. In max. 2 hours, you will learn the process and reshape a product or experience with a focus on humans and their needs, through prototyping and testing.

Your guide will be Tudor Juravlea, who is the Design Thinking Society co-founder and an experienced facilitator of design thinking processes for more than 5 years. Tudor applied both User Experience Design and Service Design on real projects in telecom, banking, and energy. He also has NGO and startup experience.

Tudor loves tech and creators but knows that while the software isn’t built to last long term, solutions are. Tech can only be disruptive when users are at its center. So the biggest disease for any business is to forget about its clients. Tudor believes that’s also the biggest risk for humanity: to forget what makes us human in the first place – childlike curiosity, creativity, and collaboration.

Dragos Nicolaescu, along with his co-hosts Alice Teodorescu & Andrei Tudose, welcome you on November 13th, to a new evening of learning, fun, and networking.

Don’t forget to book your place in advance!
