Entrepreneurship and innovation

Learning with the world’s finest entrepreneurs

Entrepreneurs are extraordinary people. Their ability to spot opportunities, innovate new ideas, overcome adversity and build brands is astonishing.

They have a thrilling approach to business life that many established companies look at in awe, and are desperate to copy.
