SEE Circle 2017: Lecture Series #2


SEE Circle 2015

Vision

Developing a vision for a deep change in the entrepreneurship landscape in Armenia and creating a learning community for knowledge and experience sharing, quick prototyping of ideas that translate into new products, services, social change, and the creation of new industries.

SEE

SEE is a Luys initiative that aims at creating a learning community of young and aspiring entrepreneurs. We propose a new format of teaching, sharing and learning.

It connects the SEE members with the centers of excellence (MIT, Chicago University, Harvard, Columbia etc.) through the Luys Scholars (currently studying at the top universities) and Luys Alumni (currently living and working in Armenia). Luys Scholar extends the courses happening now at the university through weekly online workshops and discussions run by their counterpart - Luys Alumni in Yerevan.

It's a new type of multi-party collaboration between Luys Scholars abroad, Luys Alumni and youth in Armenia who wish to advance and expand their knowledge and skills in the field of entrepreneurship.




SEE in Action

SEE online workshops

Luys Scholars run online workshops once a week and share their newly acquired knowledge, skills and expertise in the field of entrepreneurship. They provide a conduit to entrepreneurial courses, resources, network, share ideas and organize online discussions with the SEE members. Luys Scholars have their counterpart - Luys Alumni in Armenia, with whom they co-design the workshop, translate the course material into Armenian and run a workshop.

SEE club meetings

SEE members, Luys Alumni who run start-ups in Armenia and other like-minded people come together once a month for socializing, networking, promoting entrepreneurial mindsets and empowering each other. One or two entrepreneurs pitch their start-ups, share their experience, talk about their challenges, get feedback, and learn from each other.

Participants
