Julie Logan leads new course for budding entrepreneurs

Wednesday, 16 June, 2010

Is it wise to start a new business in the middle of a financial downturn?  That is one of the questions put to Julie Logan, Professor of Entrepreneurship, in this week’s Cass Talks interview.  Professor Logan says that now may actually be a good time for entrepreneurs with great business ideas as the economic slowdown will provide the opportunity for them to establish their business slowly before taking advantage of the upturn when it comes.
Professor Logan also discusses a new course recently run at Cass, the New Venture Creation Programme which helps equip budding entrepreneurs with the necessarily skills to make their business a success.
The Cass Talks interviews are an opportunity to hear Cass faculty give their perspective on current business and finance news stories, global issues affecting the business world and new research coming out of the School.
