Startup Seminar: Thinking like an entrepreneur




What goes on in the mind of an entrepreneur?

From Richard Branson to Elon Musk, it is clear that entrepreneurs across the world tend to think differently from the average 9-5ers. Identifying problems and providing solutions, taking and idea and acting on it - this by no means an easy path to walk. This talk is aimed to look at the entrepreneurial mindset and hear about how the long hours, lonely work environment and months without taking a salary is combated by the sense of reward, determination and self drive to seek entrepreneurial success.

A little about the speaker: Michael-George Hemus

Michael-George is the co-founder of Plumen, the innovative designer LED brand. Plumen make the switch to energy efficient lighting as easy and compelling as possible - MG has over seen the growth of the business from one product sold in one market, to an entire lighting range sold across the world. Over the summer, Plumen raised significant investment to grow the business - a major part of which has been the recruitment of a professional MD to drive growth and allow the founders to focus on development of the brand. 

Michael-George is a serial entrepreneur with over ten years experience in running product-based start-ups, with particular expertise in manufacturing and product development. Outside of Plumen, he is one of the re-founders of Truman’s Beer, the iconic East London brewer that was brought back to life in 2010 and is now based in Hackney Wick. He has also invested in a number of British start-up businesses.
