Aspire was founded in Romania 7 years ago by five Harvard, Princeton and other Ivy League graduates. The organisation offers leadership and entrepreneurship programs and so much more to young leaders around the world. Their regular speakers are professors from Harvard and other top schools from the US and Europe.
Classes at the summer program are especially designed to encourage participants to follow their passions and create an energetic, proactive community with common interests and values.
Two of the speakers that will be holding the lectures on leadership, entrepreneurship and personal development this year are Prof. Steven Jarding – Lecturer in Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government and Prof. Sam Potolicchio – professor at Georgetown University, RANEPA and New York University.
