At BBS, we organise a number of events of all sizes for entrepreneurs, and in addition, our experts often give lectures and hold trainings for our external partners in close cooperation with them. In recent years, we have presented at the Világgazdaság Family Business Conference, the Smart Budapest Conference and Workshop of the Budapest Enterprise Agency, and at the joint SME Capital Financing Conference of Portfolio and Highventures. Below are some highlighted examples of the diversity of our events.
In cooperation with K&K Magazine, we regularly organise full-house conferences for family business leaders, attracting more than a hundred company executives. The practical and interactive events provide an opportunity for the relevant BBS research results to be communicated to the stakeholders in a comprehensible way, so that they can utilise them to run their organisations more successfully. In addition, the events provide an opportunity for entrepreneurs to prepare for the challenges of business transfer by learning from each other’s experiences. This series will continue soon. We hope to see you on the next occasion!
- Knowledge sharing events of international projects
In recent years, BBS has participated in many international collaborations related to the topic of entrepreneurship development (ERASMUS + Partnership), which you can read more about HERE. The projects covered topics such as the sustainability and growth of family businesses, generational change issues and business mentoring, among others. One of the most significant benefits of these collaborations is that the knowledge accumulated is returned to those involved in several ways. We will partially publish the developed e-learning materials and organise open, free events for those interested. Events are updated continuously HERE.
- StartLab Entrepreneurs’ Club
The StartLab Entrepreneurs’ Club, a series of events organised monthly by BBS Budapest LAB, also supports the goal of our University to provide inspiration and valuable knowledge to young people about entrepreneurship. The aim of the Club is to help university students who are entrepreneurs, business planners and those interested in entrepreneurship, to gain experience, build relationships and build communities. Each month the guest of StartLAB is a successful entrepreneur, and students have the opportunity to talk casually and honestly with them about their experiences and what entrepreneurship is really like.
- Start-up Dispute powered by Budapest LAB
In 2019, as part of the Start-up Safari series of events, we organised a so-called Start-up Dispute, which is a fast-paced, moderated debate. In this exciting format, which is not well known in Hungary, two teams argue the pros and cons of a particular professional issue. The two teams, led by experts from the Budapest LAB and key players in the ecosystem, take part in a fun, yet meaningful discussion.
