About this event

Given enough time, most business owners could work out what needs to be done by themselves. But time is money and none of us is going to live forever. So how do owners find out what they need to know? Why do they need to grow anyway? Can Sustainability done right actually save money?

IE University partners with Bridgewhat, a business platform that believes that remarkable networks will continuously bridge and deliver sustainable growth as a purpose for human development. When great business owners come together, they can learn as much in a day as in six months by themselves.

Join us on September 28th for the live webinar "How to grow for a sustainable future", at 16:30 (Lisbon time), hosted by Joe Haslam, Executive Director of Owners and Scaleup Program at IE Business School, Ana Paula Reis and Paulo Morgado, Co-Founders of Bridgewhat.  Be the first to see Bridgewhat Academy, a free app aimed at all individuals who wish to deepen their knowledge and keep up with business growth insights.

Don’t miss this opportunity to learn techniques to develop healthy and sustainable businesses.
