Entrepreneurship

London - Oct 27, 2011

London’s entrepreneurial ecosystem has continued to expand, especially given the recent challenge by the government to use startup companies as the catalyst for economic growth and make the UK’s upcoming decade the most entrepreneurial in its history. The city hosts many of Europe’s most prominent organizations which support entrepreneurs and educate a new generation of self starters. Organizations like Enterprise UK, Global Entrepreneurship Week, and Chicago Booth have established roots in the city and connect London to the global entrepreneurship community. How do professionals see London’s entrepreneurial presence evolving? How are international entrepreneurs navigating complex global economic conditions? What does the future hold for soon-to-be entrepreneurs?

Join a discussion with Chicago Booth alumni and entrepreneurs in London who will share their perspective on the current conditions and their views on the future.
