About this Event

Welcome to the 7th Sharp Minds session, where we interview successful Scaleup Entrepreneurs and leaders and learn from their experience.

Due to the Corona situation we have chosen to turn this into a webinar instead of an on-site event as we normally do, and instead of an after-work you will get the chance to ask questions and interact with the speakers and the other event attendees digitally!

This Sharp Minds Session, Powered by SEB Greenhouse*, will focus on leadership through people, culture and behaviour.

This Sharp Minds Session will focus on growth through simplifying for the customers. Disrupting an industry through digitalisation is hard, but the key for both these Sharp Minds is Simplifying the process for the customer, through digitalisation. How important is it to know the industry before disrupting it? What are the greatest threats to a digital disruptor? Leading a team or organisation with a mission to change the World, how do you do that? Leading the customers to completely new processes, how do you do that? How important is the leadership and leadership communication during fast growing periods, with many new talents boarding on?

Our Sharp Minds 2020 are also mentors in the Sharp Minds Mentors program, where we match them with up and coming Scaleup leaders in the park. More information about the mentorship program >
