If you have a question about this talk, please contact Enterprise Tuesday.

The entrepreneurial journey begins with an idea and leads to the start of a new venture. Some argue that is the easy bit! The really hard part is the subsequent growth of the firm. This requires clarity, strategic thinking and a deep understanding of management in all its various components. One of the key issues that arise is whether people are clear enough about their choices. Should they grow a lifestyle business or a high growth business? What are the personal implications of such choices? What might be the motivations for either? What should you really think about as a founder or CEO of a growing venture?

Lord Karan Bilimoria CBE DL , Founder and Chairman of Cobra Beer, will talk about his entrepreneurial journey and the choices he made while growing the business.
