Join Dr Jeremy Hutchison-Krupat, Co-Director of the Entrepreneurship Centre and Academic Director of the Cambridge Judge Launchpad, Cambridge Judge Business School

Established organisations have many advantages with respect to their access to funding, knowledge, networks, and market power. Then why does it seem like entrepreneurs are the ones driving many new innovations? Indeed, many established organisations seem to look at entrepreneurs with a bit of envy. What do entrepreneurs have that established organisations do not? And, why don’t established organisations simply adopt these practices? Or is it simply impossible for entrepreneurial practices to thrive within the confines of large organisations?

This webinar addresses the challenges and tensions that established organisations face when seeking to become more entrepreneurial.
