2023 Corporate Summer Day: “Teamwork, a resource to be cultivated in companies”

Every year, IÉSEG organizes its Corporate Summer Day, an ideal event just before the summer vacations to take a step back and reflect on a topical issue. This year’s theme is: “Teamwork, a resource to be cultivated in companies”, and will provide an opportunity to analyze the levers of a collective culture in the company and its importance in boosting performance. It will also be an opportunity to explore other facets of the collective in management, such as entrepreneurship or access to luxury products thanks to new collective actions.

Ahead of this event, she explains the importance of collective dynamics in the world of entrepreneurship and offers some advice for the creation of entrepreneurial teams. She also discusses the thorny question of how founders divide new firm equity.
