Research shows that 70 percent of the Swedish population sees possibilities to start a business in Sweden, but that only 37 percent knows how to proceed in actually starting up a company. The entrepreneurship fair in Lund gives students the opportunity to develop their own dream job.
The student unions at Lund University is arranging career fairs to help students find their way to their working life. But what happens to the students who do not wish to travel the usual path to find their dream job?
In the beginning of the academic year, VentureLab in collaboration with Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship arranges a career fair for students who are interested in getting tools and inspiration to be able to develop their own projects- and business ideas. The fair includes participation from business angels, new startups who are in search of partners and business advisors who are available for those who are interested in starting up a new business.
“We need to show that this is also a path to take – your own path. There are more people starting companies in Sweden, but there are still a lot of people who just don´t know where to start. We want to inspire our visitors to find the path that suits them”, says Lottie Olsson Norrsén, director of external relations at Sten K. Johnson Centre for Entrepreneurship.
