Following societal pressures towards universities being more active in entrepreneurship and innovation, new agents have started to participate in the process of university change. Grassroots movements – usually led by students without institutional agendas – became a new gear in this machine. This seminar aims to discuss the role of entrepreneurship societies in fostering entrepreneurship at the undergraduate level, their current challenges, and their impact.
