Economic 1st respondents

In the context of the Role To Play initiative, Nova SBE set up a response team to help small and medium enterprises in Cascais Municipality. Partnering with Deloitte and DNA Cascais, Economic 1st Responders targeted the survival of the ecosystem by reflecting on the necessary adjustments to a new environment and the future.

This project integrated bachelor’s, master’s, and MBA students, as well as Alumni, faculty, and staff. More than 50students volunteered on a weekly basis. Together with partners and working in an online environment, teams monitored the permanently changing environment and updated the ecosystem.

While working for this project, students are beneficiaries themselves, shaping a better management environment as they enter the job market.

We have a role to play!
