Some of you are wondering what exactly I’m doing here in Amsterdam. What is this Knowmads business school? What do you do there?
With the Open Day approaching I think back at the one about six months ago where I was asked to say a few words on what Knowmads was for me or in my world. I tried to just talk about what I had been doing at and with Knowmads but the unavoidable question always surfaces: What can you actually learn then? I recall puzzled gazes to the unavoidable response: “it is all up to you”. A few weeks ago I had a cup of coffee with Simon from WordsThatChange who asked me the same question just a bit differently: “What have you learned?” and without accepting the usual response “oh so many things” he got me started (thanks for that, Simon!). The following is the list; no it’s more like MY list.
Pieter Spinder is tribe leader and initiator of Knowmads, an entrepreneurial school in Amsterdam. At Knowmads, students aren’t exactly taught anything in the traditional sense of the world. Instead, they’re asked to form a company and get to work.
