• Side Hustles: How To Launch A Business On The Side

    Entrepreneurs often use their spare time to get validation for a business idea while they are employed full time. Let's learn more about it. REGISTER HERE: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/side-hustles-how-to-launch-a-business-on-the-side-tickets-66462859201 Side hustles are probably the most common entrepreneurial activity among employees in large organizations. Having a business idea while employed full time often results in a dilemma: should I quit now and pursue my idea full time? Or should I wait until I have more validation? But if I wait, will I have the resilience and the stamina to make it happen for real? How should I set things up from a legal, contractual point of view with my employer? Let's learn more from two "side hustlers" who succeeded and eventually took the plunge. AGENDA 18:00 welcome and drinks 18:30 - Side Hustles panel: let's learn from two case studies how to succeed with doing entrepreneurial activities on a side. Panel includes: - Jonathan Jayson launched The Comedy Crowd, an online platform where like minded creators and fans who together help develop new comedy projects while working full time. He decided to focus full time on his business idea after 9 years at EY - Ernest & Young. - Davide Turi is a "serial side-hustler". During the last 20 years he juggled between corporate jobs and launching two startups - one of them sold - publishing nine books, lecturing at universities and managing an independent record label. He has also started Studio Zao as a side hustle, now his full-time, and only, job. 19:30 - More Drinks and Networking

  • Corporate Spin-outs: When Intrapreneurs launch new business models

    CORPORATE SPIN-OUTS When we think of corporate ventures and spin-outs, we think about the investment perspective, the numbers, the portfolio. Perhaps we don’t immediately think about it from the perspective of the ones actually doing it: the intrapreneurs. In this month’s Corporate Entrepreneurs London series, we will have two corporate ventures talk about how they got off the ground, but told from the perspective of those who rolled up their sleeves and made it happen. We will hear about how real corporate ventures and spin-outs formed, grew and scaled. WHO IS THIS EVENT FOR?
