BCS North London Branch: Innovation & Entrepreneurship

Innovation & Entrepreneurship
– Are these the key ingredients to long term economic survival?

Wednesday, October 21, 2009 from 6:30 PM – 9:00 PM
BCS 1st floor, 5 Southampton Street Covent Garden, London

Apparently tough times can be good for you, especially as necessity and scarcity can often lead to innovation and entrepreneurship. It’s no news that many companies are struggling to cope with the current economic situation, but even more are unsure of how to cope with an upturn, given the aggressive cost-cutting they’ve had to undergo just to stay alive. So what can individuals and organisations do to ensure they:

  • 1. Survive the down-turn?
  • 2. Position for growth in a recovery?
  • 3. Leverage innovation and entrepreneurship to address these two questions?

Undoubtedly, it will require some pretty nifty footwork to ensure that both immediate and long term goals are satisfied, but then this is where Innovation and Entrepreneurship can provide some valuable answers.
