Effectuation Conference 2023

We have prepared a program on “effectuation,” known as the behavioral logic of successful entrepreneurs, for researchers, business people, and students (both high school and junior high school students) to enjoy. We hope that you will join us in thinking about the power of the concept of effectuation, especially in the context of Japanese society.
