CEU Business School co-hosted the Second Entrepreneurship Summit Sept. 26 with the American Chamber of Commerce in Hungary, the U.S. Embassy, Budapest Business School, and the Hungarian Private Equity and Venture Capital Association. Keynote speaker Robin Chase, founder of Zipcar, spoke about lessons learned on the road to building the world’s largest car-sharing company. She also shared her insights the following day in a private session with CEU Business School students, urging them to run companies as “learning companies” that swiftly recognize and rectify problems. Chase has received many awards in the areas of innovation, design, and environment, including Time’s 100 Most Influential People, Fast Company’s Fast 50 Innovators, and BusinessWeek’s Top 10 Designers.
