Enterprise Tuesday 2015 - make it brilliant and they will come

William Tunstall-Pedoe founded Evi (formerly True Knowledge), a Cambridge-based Artificial Intelligence technology business that makes the Evi product. The vision for the business was a world where people could find out any information they needed just by asking naturally for it – the computer would understand them and give them back exactly what they wanted. Founded in 2006 with the core technology and a patent application, the vision has stayed exactly the same, though the business went through multiple pivots to find success. How brilliant does a product need to be to succeed in a crowded market? How do you remain focussed on your vision through multiple pivots? Clearly Evi hit a milestone when Amazon acquired the company in 2012. William is a Cambridge University computer science graduate. Before, during and after his time in Cambridge, he has been an entrepreneur, developing AI applications and marketing them through businesses he has founded. William founded Evi in 2006 after...

Enterprise Tuesday 2014 - Growing the business: where process and spirit come together

Professor Stelios Kavadias is deeply interested in innovation and growth. He employed his academic and practical insights to interview a panel of entrepreneurs and senior managers (Denis Kaminskiy, CEO of Arcus Global; Emma Ratzer, CEO of Access Community Trust; Jane Dancer, COO of F-star) about how they managed the cross over from having ideas to creating early stage ventures and growing their respective businesses. It is all very well to have ideas and to start a business but how do you sustain the spirit of entrepreneurship through the difficult period of growth when things become more process driven and what processes do you need? Enterprise Tuesday is a series of FREE evening lectures and networking sessions delivered by the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL) which take place from November to the end of February in Cambridge. The programme aims to introduce participants to the world of business, as well as to encourage and inspire individuals to pursue their entrepreneu...

Enterprise Tuesday 2014 - Forget Venture Capital! Get Customers to Fund You

Many new ventures never use venture capital. So how do they get the money to start and grow their business? The answer lies with the customers. Michael Dell, Bill Gates and Banana Republic′s Mel and Patricia Ziegler all used customers to develop their iconic companies. In this session, Dr John Mullins talks about his pragmatic thinking on business and what entrepreneurs need in the early stages of a venture. John is one of the foremost business academics and practitioners in the field of entrepreneurship. He has 20 years of executive experience in high-growth retailing firms including two ventures he founded and one he took public. John's first trade book, The New Business Road Test: What Entrepreneurs and Executives Should Do Before Launching a Lean Start-Up (now 4e, London: Prentice-Hall/FT 2013), has become the definitive work on the assessment and shaping of entrepreneurial opportunities and is widely used by investors and entrepreneurs and in university courses worldwide.

The meaning of success for enterprising women

Dr Shima Barakat, Research & Teaching Fellow in Enterprise at the Centre for Entrepreneurial Learning (CfEL), Cambridge Judge Business School, features in a Cambridge book The Meaning of Success and on the accompanying website at http://www.cam.ac.uk/women-at-cambridge, speaking about her career and philosophy of success.
