Entrepreneurial
Day 2021

Entrepreneurs see opportunities to improve, enhance, disrupt and redefine, and in doing so transform themselves, society and the way we do business. This year we celebrate transformation through the lens of personal growth, purpose and profit – showcasing guests who have successfully balanced the development of a sustainable enterprise while making a positive contribution to society and developing personally through the process.

Exploring #TransformationalEntrepreneurship together with you, we will make sure to serve you a wide range of inspirational speakers. Our speakers represent a diverse range of journeys and backgrounds, from those building their business to others who now give back to the ecosystem, working to redefine an open, thriving and accessible innovation network in Denmark. They will engage in discussions and spark debate around a range of topics, from through the startup founder’s transformative journey, through to stigma of eating insects as part of your daily diet.

As the largest student startup event in Denmark, CBS Entrepreneurial Day showcases the important role of education in building the transformational leaders of tomorrow, placing Danish innovation on the world stage. This year, we will be taking our event online as well as in person! Enjoy from the comfort of your own home via online streaming, take part in discussions during the event, and join our startup network to continue the networking.

See you there at #ED2021

The Speakers

Oscar Bjørn-Rosager

Main Speaker

Oscar Bjørn-Rosager is the Founder of ProOwnedCycling. A global E-commerce selling used and overstock items from the professional Tour De France riders to customers in +80 countries.

As a former semi-professional cyclist, his passion for cycling has always been enormous. When he stopped cycling, he became more interested in business and entrepreneurship; his passion for cycling and interest in entrepreneurship was the two building bricks for him to start ProOwnedCycling. Passion, patience, and thinking different have been some of the keywords for Oscar to have success in a red ocean. Back in 2018 Oscar and his partner Casper had their office at CSE and were just the two of them in the company. The transformation from being a start-up to a scale-up and expanding the number of employees with +400% under a pandemic is among the touchpoints in Oscars motivational speech.

In April 2021, Oscar was listed on the Forbes Under30 list for Europe, E-commerce and retail.
