As a measure to strengthen future Swedish innovation, the Student Board at IVA (Royal Academy of Engineering Sciences) together with IVA West, invite you to an exciting evening in an innovative environment at Veras Gräsmatta, Chalmers in order to inspire today's young engineers to develop their entrepreneurial skills and ways of thinking.

Entrepreneurship is a broad field with many definitions. One definition that many of us share, no-matter age, gender or ethnicity, is the view that entrepreneurship is all about using your abilities to make the world better.

Join us for an inspirational evening where you get to listen to both start-up companies and experienced business leaders as they give their view on the importance of entrepreneurial skills in their organisations. We will also give you the opportunity to share your take on how entrepreneurship will shape the future with them and the rest of the participants. 


Introduction by IVA West and IVA Student Board

Chalmers view on entrepreneurship - Anna Karlsson-Bengtsson, Vice President of education and life-long learning, Chalmers

Three perspectives on the importance of entrepreneurial skills in their organisations:

  • Martin Lundstedt, CEO, AB Volvo
  • Viktor Stensson, CEO Bokio
  • Anna Holmberg Borkmann, Sahlgrenska School of Innovation and Entrepreneurship & Center for Intellectual Property

After the presentations, we invite both speakers and audience to participate in an organized workshop on how entrepreneurship will shape the future.
