KNOWLEDGE HUB TOP STORIES
Prof. Leonard Greenhalgh of Ivy League’s Tuck School of Business Management their commitment to Minority Business Education & partnership with MSDUK.
There’s a 95% failure rate for start-ups in the first 5 years. Entrepreneurs thinking they
have got a great idea, may know how to deliver a service, or a product. However, where businesses are most likely to suffer is not thinking about how to manager cash flow, employees, marketing or operations strategy the way that large organisations do. There are the things that hold people back in building successful businesses and in 4 days where we can teach them everything they wish they knew that screws people out of business.” MSDUK delivers this residential programme annually for high potential business owners in partnership with Ivy League’s Tuck School of Business and
Aston Business School.
