MQ Academy | Donation Based, Schaffhauserstrasse 78, Room 108, 8057 Zürich, Switzerland



Join the conversation that shapes the future of entrepreneurship. We will discuss how the face of entrepreneurship is shifting from a one-person-dominated show to a network approach and moving toward the integration of AI. The Salon shed light on the shift from traditional career paths to the innovative realm of startups, particularly examining how countries like Germany and Switzerland adapt to this change. 

Please check Christian's published article on the topic here

This Salon is more than a historical overview; it's a vibrant discussion on the systematic evolution of entrepreneurship, transitioning from the stable, predictable world to the complex, uncertain VUCA era post-millennium. We will celebrate innovation, revalue entrepreneurship, and inspire enthusiasm for creating impactful startups in today's world.

The discussion leverages the research paper on Entrepreneurship written by Dr. Christian Hugo Hoffmann.

Limited seats; reserve early! We would request a suggested donation of CHF 20-25 for the space.
