A successful business starts with the entrepreneur!

CV & Awards

Josette
 Dijkhuizen

As entrepreneur and professor I connect science with practice in the field of entrepreneurship. I do this by using my knowledge, experience and network for the business and personal development of entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, and by setting up innovative projects which are of societal and economic value.

 

 

For me, entrepreneurship development and growth is not about bigger, but about greater. That’s why I always say: a successful business starts with the entrepreneur. For me, the success is not determined by the size of the enterprise, but by the contribution and impact the entrepreneur delivers to society and in realizing his or her ambitions.

My focus is on corporate entrepreneurship, social and women entrepreneurship, and on the more psychological aspects.

Entrepreneurship is about vision, recognizing opportunities, the development of products and services… and simply doing. Because who I am, what I know and what I have experienced, I am not only able to have soundboard sessions with entrepreneurs and organizations, but I can also accelerate projects through my enthusiasm and drive, and I am able to connect the right people.

Projects

For me the success of an enterprise is determined by the qualities of the man, woman, or team who starts or runs a business. In my projects therefore the personal development of the (corporate) entrepreneur is the focus point, off course in relation with the business situation. In this my special attention is for the position and development of female entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial people who come from vulnerable positions, such as survivors of domestic violence and refugees.

Female
Entrepeneurship

It is time to enforce the enormous potential of female entrepreneurs. By supporting more women in the start-up or scale-up of their business, more jobs will be created and more economic prosperity will be achieved for many countries. Furthermore, these women also boost innovation, poverty reduction and promotion of well-being. Women are the agents of change!
