Building a more entrepreneurial firm

July 18, 2017 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am

Ingenuity KnowledgeXchange Breakfast Event

What is an entrepreneurial organisation? We all know what an organisation is and have some idea of what an entrepreneur is but what makes an entrepreneurial organisation? Our researchers have identified enterprises, large and small, that are able to innovate consistently from within, not just as a reaction to external factors. We will demonstrate a diagnostic tool that allows organisations to assess their entrepreneurial capabilities and, most importantly, to suggest alternative strategies to improve these vital competencies.

State Aid
This event is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund 2014-2020 and is part of the Enabling Innovation Programme. This event is classed as State Aid to participating businesses, the value of which is £100, but is delivered completely free of charge to participants.

The ‘Shop Window’
The Shop Window is your chance to take the floor to make a brief presentation to the room about something you are looking for help with.

From the University? If you have a business-facing project or want to work with local small and medium-sized businesses as part of your research, this is your opportunity to make contact with business owners. Our network members are already interested in what happens at the University and may be interested in participating with your initiative.

From a business? Sorry, but the Shop Window isn’t the time for a “60 second pitch”. Feedback from our network members tells us that our businesses want something different from Ingenuity. But it is your opportunity to do some research of your own: request volunteers for new product or service trials, ask if anyone has any recommendations for difficult-to-find suppliers, or simply share some news that the audience might not find out about otherwise.

If you would like to participate in the Shop Window just drop us a line.
