Dear fellow SEMU Entrepreneurs,

The workshop has been rescheduled for Tuesday April 30th at 6:30pm at the Microsoft Store Community theater.

Thank you,

Beruk Ambatchew


Professor Michael Gordon from The Center for Competitive Success, will be hosting another workshop at the Microsoft Store.

What do these companies have in common: Apple, UPS, Amazon, 3M, Avon Products,Thermo Fisher Scientific, Samsung, Sony, Pixar Animation Studios … ?   These are among the 100 most innovative businesses in the world as reported by Forbes Magazine (2012).  Although their innovation methodologies may differ, their quest for uniqueness has led to dramatic revenue and profit growth, brand enhancement, sustainability and competitive advantages. Contrast this with other companies such as Polaroid, Tower Records, Digital Equipment, Blockbuster, Barnes & Noble, Hostess Brands, … to name a few of the 1.6 million American bankruptcies that occur each year.  To their great detriment, these high-profile failures were not consistently innovative.  This one-hour workshop will flesh out Best Practices from several of the most innovative companies in the world.  Using frameworks, models and examples, we will have an interactive discussion on how successful companies have embedded innovation into their cultures and achieved sustainable growth, competitive success and remarkable profitability.

Prof. Michael Gordon has had a 32-year career in entrepreneurship. He has been involved in six business start-ups, and one of his ventures was sold to a public
British company. For over 20 years, he has taught 
entrepreneurship on the MBA, DBA and Executive
Education levels at universities around the world, notably:
Harvard University Extension School, Babson College,
International School of Management and many other
schools in Europe, Southeast Asia, the United Kingdom,
and Latin America. In 2009, he was honored with the
Teaching Excellence Award for the International Region by the Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP). Over his career, Dr. Gordon has developed several patents, published articles in science and business, created many case studies for his courses, and wrote a book for Donald Trump’s Organization on entrepreneurship: “How to Turn Your Idea Into a Money Machine,” 2nd Edition, (John Wiley & Sons, 2010). Education: Worcester Polytechnic Institute and MIT.

The meetup will take place at the community theater in the new Microsoft Store in the Prudential Center Mall.The event will start at 6pm and end at 8pm. The format is essentially a traditional networking session  that will start with about 30 minutes of networking and schmoozing, then the workshop will begin. After the workshop is completed, remainder of the event will be more schmoozing and networking. Food and refreshments (non-alcoholic) will be provided.

Space is limited: To ensure your place, please RSVP as soon as possible or go to:  [masked]
