Series: Female Founders Breakfast Series by Cass Global Women's Leadership Programme

The Cass Global Women's Leadership Programme kicks off the Female Founders Breakfast Series in April. This is a sequence of three events for women entrepreneurs, and for women who want to start their own business but don’t know how or where to start. Each event brings together a panel of experts, thereby combining insights from academics and practitioners, and an action-oriented workshop to jumpstart your entrepreneurial journey!

Event #1 TAKING YOUR ENTREPRENEURIAL IDEA FORWARD including CREATIVITY masterclass
Date and Time: 4 April 2019, 8-10:10am
Venue: Cass Executive Education Facilities, 200 Aldersgate St, London EC1A 4HD

Even though women constitute 52% of the total European population, they represent only a third of EU start-up activity. New businesses start with creative thinking. In this event, you will learn how creative thinking can be applied to develop your entrepreneurial ideas by combining design and arts-based methods with business thinking. You will challenge your attitudes to risk, practice giving and receiving constructive criticism, and you will leave with greater creative confidence!
