  2. Lord Karan Bilimoria CBE DL, founder and Chairman of Cobra Beer, speaking about his entrepreneurial journey and the choices he made while growing the business, at the Enterprise Tuesday lecture series in February 2013.

    The entrepreneurial journey begins with an idea and leads to the start of a new venture. Some argue that is the easy bit! The really hard part is the subsequent growth of the firm. This requires clarity, strategic thinking and a deep understanding of management in all its various components. One of the key issues that arise is whether people are clear enough about their choices. Should they grow a lifestyle business or a high growth business? What are the personal implications of such choices? What might be the motivations for either? What should you really think about as a founder or CEO of a growing venture?

  3. Complete lecture from the Enterprise Tuesday session on 13th November 2012 chaired by CfEL Director, Dr Shai Vyakarnam with guest speaker Dr Darrin Disley, a serial entrepreneur who has been involved in the start-up and growth of ten high-tech business ventures.

    In the second session of the 2012-2013 Enterprise Tuesday series, we have an opportunity to explore Mindsets and Motivations in the context of one of the fastest growing biotech firms in Europe. Horizon Discovery has been growing at 100%+ per annum by leveraging its strong IP, technology and customer base. It is a fast growing company rather than a lifestyle venture. What implication does this have on the management team and the business itself? How does a team form the skills to complement their vision to tackle the appropriateness of business models, regulatory challenges, the need for deep research pockets, sales to large corporates and other bureaucracies and more generally manage teams of very bright people?

  4. Complete lecture from the Enterprise Tuesday session on 6th November 2012 chaired by CfEL Director, Dr Shai Vyakarnam with guest speakers Professor Sir Richard Friend, Dr. Simon Bransfield Garth and Dr Seena Rejal

    A central question in entrepreneurship is when and how do people recognise an opportunity that is worth pursuing? Should it be ideas that are evident in the market place based on alertness? Should it be about deep research that leads to ideas of how to disrupt markets? And when should we pursue them? Is it only when they offer watertight business cases or when they get us excited? In other words, what is the typical anatomy of an opportunity?

    One of the more popular definitions of entrepreneurship is by Prof Howard Stevenson at Harvard Business School: "It is that an opportunity is pursued regardless of access to resources." This may well apply to some opportunities but can it also apply to the translation of deep research into commercially viable products and services?

    This question was examined at the first Enterprise Tuesday session of the 2012/2013 series through a live example, Eight19, a "hot" Cambridge company and the third start-up of Prof Sir Richard Friend, Cavendish Professor at the University of Cambridge. Eight19 has plastic solar technology that can revolutionize lives of people who are "off-grid". The game changer is a printable plastic solar cell that is extremely affordable and scalable.

    The guest speakers are members of a top team both in terms of scientific research and commercialisation. Professor Sir Richard Friend is co-presenting with Dr. Simon Bransfield Garth, CEO of Eight19 who has deep experience of taking disruptive technology to market and a PhD in Engineering from St Johns College. They will be joined by Dr Seena Rejal, who has a strong track record too including time at the Clinton Climate Initiative, and was Chairman of Cambridge University entrepreneurs when he was a PhD at Cambridge!"
