What's It Like to Be Part of Creative Business Education?

Being a student at Knowmads has a lot to do with unlearning: unlearning patterns and behaviors that we picked up from our upbringing and schooling.

How being stuck might be the best thing that ever happened to you. – Alex Falk

Some challenges seem vast, frightening, beyond our scope; we don’t know where to look to start solving them. These challenges rear their heads when we are least expecting them.

Open Atelier by Joana: Creativity and Connection Come Together

Knowmads is an alternative business school. More than that it’s an experience, one that’s different for each individual. For me, it brought out what was already present but needed to be believed in more. It gave me trust and confidence. A kick in the butt to go after what I want. And when I did, […]
