Bio

As an entrepreneur and endowed professor, I connect science with practice in the field of entrepreneurship. My knowledge, experience and network is used for the business and personal development of entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs, and by setting up innovative projects which are of societal and economic value. 

Expertise

My focus is on corporate entrepreneurship, social and women entrepreneurship, and on the more psychological aspects. In this field I work as consultant, trainer and speaker for educational institutions, corporates, public sector, and many others. My passion for entrepreneurship is expressed in books, scientific papers, and presentations. A previous position as UN Women’s Representative for the Netherlands, led to the idea for Krachtbedrijf Foundation, to assist survivors of violence to start-up their business. I received (inter)national awards for my work. Do you want to know more about me? You are welcome to visit www.josettedijkhuizen.nl

Teaching

Since I established my own company in 2005 giving lectures, workshops and trainings across the globe, is part of my activities. In this way I meet a lot of interesting people from different cultures and I am able to travel to all kinds of destinations.

Collaboration

As entrepreneur and academic I love to connect science with practice. This is expressed in all kinds of programs, enterprises and activities in the field of social and women entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship and entrepreneurship.
