Global School student-entrepreneur Alessandro is the founder of SoleShape! A website for sneakerheads where you can safely purchase authentic exclusive sneakers, and soon other fashion items and accessories.
During the interview Alessandro talks about his experience of transferring from a generic university and how Global School has guided him to become an entrepreneur.
”Global School understands that entrepreneurship is time consuming and therefore offers plenty of “free” time to work on your venture and develop as an entrepreneur. It is very noteworthy for me that you are facilitated with an office, business address, meeting rooms, studio, gym and this together with about a hundred (inter)national co-entrepreneurs in the center of Amsterdam. You can imagine that it is difficult to leave the campus with these facilities. For me, this results in more working hours which allowed me to double the turnover of my other company within 1 year. As well as being able to set up multiple businesses with fellow students, Checklijn with Santi being one of them. Unfortunately (but to be expected) entrepreneurship is not always easy. Global School has always been able to advise and guide me to a positive outcome!” – Emre
