"Our mission is to promote innovation and entrepreneurial activity within LundaEkonomerna. The Entrepreneurship Committee aims to support aspiring student entrepreneurs, rookies to professionals, providing access to startup knowledge and experience, as well as a network of people with similar interest and goals"
What we do
The Entrepreneurship Committee organizes and manages a set of events including our pitching competition and flagship event “Dragon’s Den”. The final event will take place in April 2016, but until then we will run two other events that are focused on entrepreneurship. We are focused on high quality work and to achieve this we decided that three events would be perfect as it would allow us to maintain a high standard.
In order to achieve this, the committee works closely with other committees in LundaEkonomerna, external companies and other departments within the University, such as the Sten K. Johnson Center for Entrepreneurship.
If you got any request we are happy to hear from you. You can e-mail any of us on the addresses below.
Are you new to entrepreneurship?
Congrats! This could be the beginning of a new path. To participate in our events you don’t need any experience in entrepreneurship. We have our first lunch lecture on the 9th of December, don’t miss it!
Are you in the right place if you already are an entrepreneur?
Yes, we think so! Our first lunch lecture for example will focus on a specific area of the entrepreneurship. We think that the beginners will find interest in the object, while the more experienced will be able to learn key points to becoming a successful entrepreneur.
Do you have any questions or need help?
We are a team of six member who have a great passion for entrepreneurship. All of us have experience from different areas, and we would be glad to help if you need guidance or have any questions.
Interview with the Project Leader

What drives you as an entrepreneur?
The desire to want to change the world for the better.
Why do you consider the existence of the Entrepreneurship Committee to be important?
When it comes down to choosing a career I sincerely believe in freedom of choice. Everyone doesn’t want to work at a bank or auditing firm just like everyone doesn’t want to become artists. If we can show the students of LundaEkonomerna that creating your own job can be both fun and rewarding I’d say we’ve succeeded.
What advice would you give to someone who recently developed an interest for entrepreneurship?
Just do it! If you want and truly believe in something, go get it. Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Stay hungry and learn from your and other’s mistakes. There are no short cuts however don’t waste time. You’ll always miss 100% of the shots you don’t take and if you’re not being told ‘no’ constantly, you’re not pushing hard enough. Last but not least: welcome to any of our events!
You are welcome to contact the members if you have any questions.
