5 ways that Business Agility gets your business ready for Brexit

One thing is certain. Over the next 12 - 24 months, things are going to change for the British business community in a big way. Brexit. And where March 2019 seems to be marked with a big red question mark on most of our Calendars, the focus seems to only remain on How and When. Dangerous territory. Despite attempted predictions and imaginings on what the world will look like post-Brexit – there’s unfortunately no clear-cut blue-print that plots the state of the economic world, until we actually get there. And that doesn’t fill many businesses with confidence. Especially the smaller, [...]

It’s time to get your invention to market. Here’s how.

For centuries, Britain has been known as an innovation powerhouse. Individuals, just like you, have been (and still are) coming up with ideas and products which completely transform the way our world turns. And as the curve of innovation only continues to grow, there is one huge problem. Innovation without commercialisation means nothing. Harsh, but true. From Universities to start-ups to science labs to boardroom tables, the United Kingdom is a fertile ground for innovation. However, the one missing element of successful innovation constantly being overlooked is effective monetisation. Without this, we’d still be living in the dark, travelling to [...]

The (Private Equity) times, they are a changing.

The investment world is facing huge change. Our entire economy is being bent and twisted, scrutinised and tested. Whether it’s political instability or changing customer demands, our markets are reaching new levels of uncertainty and insecurity. But, where most industries are facing dread, there are some which are fast developing agility and insight that is seeing them outlast many others in the same race. Against a backdrop of macroeconomic and geopolitical uncertainty, it has been anything but an easy ride. However, despite the uncertainty that this has created, “record levels of fresh capital and an abundance of cheap debt have [...]

Even young entrepreneurs need exit strategies

Think The Exit Strategy is just for mid-senior executives? Think again. Entrepreneurs, regardless of age, live for the struggle and excitement of starting something new. And although many keep their focus on moving past their first few years in business, many neglect to think about an exit strategy – how to get their money back out again. Traditionally, the Exit Strategy used to be something that was synonymous with the more senior executive, but with more and more younger entrepreneurs disrupting our marketplace and creating exciting new businesses, the traditional Exit Strategy has become a concern for all ages. And [...]

The birth of the Millennipreneur

A new generation of entrepreneurs has arrived – and they’re starting businesses quicker that it takes to boil the kettle. They’re not only starting more businesses, but they’re already outperforming their parents and these so-called “Millennipreneurs”, at just 20 to 35 years old, are starting more companies, managing bigger talent teams and targeting higher profit than their predecessors. These findings come from the 2016 BNP Paribas Global Entrepreneur Report, and it recalls: “From Generation Y, born between 1980 and 1995, they stand out by creating an increased number of companies, both in the new economy and traditional sectors. They average launched [...]
