Professor Stelios Kavadias is deeply interested in innovation and growth. He will use his academic and practical insights to interview a panel of entrepreneurs and senior managers about how they managed the cross over from having ideas to creating early stage ventures and growing their respective businesses. It is all very well to have ideas and to start a business but how do you sustain the spirit of entrepreneurship through the difficult period of growth when things become more process driven and what processes do you need?

We have Denis Kaminsky CEO and co-founder of a fast growing enterprise software company Arcus Global; Emma Ratzer of Access Community Trust to talk about growth in social enterprise and Dr. Jane Dancer Chief Business Officer from F-Star that is in the biotech sector.

Enterprise Tuesday is a series of FREE evening lectures and networking sessions delivered by the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL) which take place from November to the end of February in Cambridge. The programme aims to introduce participants to the world of business, as well as to encourage and inspire individuals to pursue their entrepreneurial ambition. It is the most popular non-assessed programme within the University and the model has been adopted by numerous other academic institutions as well as corporations.

Enterprise Tuesday is open to all University of Cambridge staff and students, members of other universities and the local business community. The series is particularly relevant for postgraduate students considering future career paths, those exploring entrepreneurial opportunities and looking to build high quality networks with experts and practitioners.

18:30-20:00 Lecture The lectures will cover some of the practical skills that are needed to successfully commercialise an idea. These lectures are delivered by a number of successful and experienced entrepreneurs.

“Enterprise Tuesday epitomises Cambridge’s world-class entrepreneurial ecosystem. It allows regular students, prospective entrepreneurs with ‘zero’ entrepreneurial experience and current startup founders to be inspired by highly successful and engaging founders of premier companies. Combined with a great networking session after the talks and the chance to meet similarly motivated students and professionals from different fields, this once-a-week event it an absolute must to attend.” Ajoeb Baridi, President of the Cambridge University Innovation Forum (CUIF) 2013-2014
