Session content

The final Session of Enterprise Tuesday is a panel Session that discusses the differences between lifestyle and high growth ventures and the capabilities and characteristics of the entrepreneurs who found them.

A highly qualified and specially selected panel from Cambridge UK and WA, led by Matt MacFarlane, will look at the characteristics of both a lifestyle business and high-growth business, and discuss how the decision is made by the entrepreneur to build one or the other. In addition, panellists will consider what external factors can come into play to change that decision.
