The visit formed part of an immersion programme in entrepreneurship for MBA students from Ahmedabad University. The students, all of whom are involved in running their own family businesses, visited Bailey Fisher as part of the month-long programme run by Cambridge’s Judge Business School. Shai Vyakarnam, Director of the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning at the Judge arranged for the students to meet for interactive sessions with inspirational family-owned companies in Cambridge.
Paul Bailey and Ann Fisher, Founding Partners of Bailey Fisher, enjoyed spending time with the students at Bailey Fisher’s offices in St John’s Innovation Centre. Two of the key points that the students took away from the session were the importance of bringing a Chairman into the business as a trusted third party, and the importance of recruiting and empowering the right team to help an ambitious business fulfil its potential.
“I was discussing with Shai Vyakarnam the other day that it is possible to find organisations that do the kind of work that you are into but almost impossible to replicate the manner in which you guys do it. I was really impressed. Thank you for all your support.” Taral Pathak, Professor & Co-ordinator Entrepreneurial MBA, Ahmedabad University
