Zamek Cieszyn – an institution promoting culture, design and entrepreneurship organized The World Entrepreneurship Week in Cieszyn. This is an international project run since 2008 in which over 100 countries from all over the world (including Poland) are taking part. All the participants want to develop business initiatives. This year’s motto is BUSINESS IS GOOD, ENTREPRENEURHIP IS GOOD.
From 14th to 17th November 2016 people interested in their personal and business development took part in fascinating lectures and workshops promoting entrepreneurship in the Cieszyn Silesia region. Students, managers, teachers and businessmen participated in the following workshops:
· Act for others, study for yourself, which means how to get managerial experience in high school
· Business with passion
· Structure of business model
· About overcoming your own weaknesses
· The power of social media
During the meetings all participants focused on the most popular myths regarding running your own business. They explored the way from an idea to business. They learnt new modern methods of describing business ideas and also how to take an advantage of social media in order to reach the target customers fast. Taking Sklep Zamek Cieszyn as an example the experts from Zamek Cieszyn presented a design thinking used in preparing social innovations and services
The event showed those who are still learning and those who are still looking for jobs or planning to open their own companies that it is worth to follow other entrepreneurs’ experience and become open to new ways of realizing your ideas for life
Zamek Cieszyn invites for another boost of entrepreneurial news not only in one year time but in fact every month when new interesting both Polish and foreign ideas regarding design and entrepreneurship are presented.
