Effectuation: the Art of Being an Entrepreneur

The Holy Spirit University of Kaslik (USEK) organized a webinar entitled “Effectuation: the Art of Being an Entrepreneur”, conducted by Dr. Joe Tabet.

This event, hosted by the Asher Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (ACIE), was held on Thursday, October 15, 2020 at 7:00 p.m., via Microsoft Teams.

This virtual interactive workshop shed light on the concept of effectuation as the most natural and sensible way to start a business. Being an entrepreneur is not only to have a great idea or be able to predict the future: most entrepreneurs actually “do business” before they even think of writing a business plan.

Main points covered:
  • a didactic presentation of the constituents of an effectual model
  • a methodology to apply effectuation while starting your business
  • entrepreneurs’ stories and practical examples
  • Q & A
