Lord Karan Bilimoria of Chelsea CBE DL will talk about how investing in skills can increase the chances of entrepreneurial success at our info session on 1 Feb. It’s also an opportunity to discover more about the transformative Postgraduate Diploma in Entrepreneurship (PGDE).

Dr Jo Mills, Programme Director for the Postgraduate Diploma in Entrepreneurship says “Investing in yourself is investing in your business but few entrepreneurs are encouraged to see it like that. In fact, they tend to feel guilty when they are spending money on their own development, rather than putting it into their business. With start-up failures potentially even higher than previously thought, it’s really time to throw out the old assumptions that entrepreneurs can ‘wing it’ and learn as they go, and make investment in individual skills a core part of being an entrepreneur. Even for established entrepreneurs, it’s all about being a better entrepreneur. The more skills you have the less likely your business is to fail and that’s what economies around the world need – not just innovators and entrepreneurs but really skilled innovators and entrepreneurs who know, not just how to create, but how to run a business for the optimum chance of success.”

Our guest speaker Lord Karan Bilimoria has said “There’s no doubt that many aspects of successful entrepreneurship can be taught – they are, after all, simply the fundamentals of good business management. And at Cambridge we are also fortunate to be able to offer a unique environment full of entrepreneurs, successful ventures and brilliance in research and learning.”

The Postgraduate Diploma in Entrepreneurship, offered by Cambridge Judge Business School, can help entrepreneurs meet the challenges of starting and sustaining a business venture. The development of foundation skills, knowledge and networks can transform you and your enterprise.

Join us on 1 February in London to find out more, meet the programme team, mentors, members of faculty and alumni.
