This Entrepreneurial Talk will be entirely dedicated to the topic ”How to deal with uncertainty, ambiguity, and risk?”. The Talk starts with a keynote lecture by Prof. Robin De Cock from the Antwerp Management School who will talk about the entrepreneur as the big risk-taker and evaluating entrepreneurial methods for dealing with risk, ambiguity, and uncertainty. Then the Talk will go deeper into the topic via a panel discussion with insights both from the academic and business world on the one hand and also by a “student-entrepreneur” and a “professor- entrepreneur”.
