Master class overview

In the master class, Prof. Haslam will address indigenous entrepreneurship from a different perspective to the Silicon Valley Model. 

He will discuss:

          Growth doesn’t make you a scale-up

          Small, and want to grow? Big, and want to hold on? Get the basics right

          Go in at the right time (it’s later than you think)

          Embrace the era of ‘big’

          Ignoring the start-up hype

          The advantages of scale

          Culture at scale

          It’s not all about unicorns
