Understanding the Mindset of the Entrepreneur

  IMD Discovery Event October 4-5
Topic Understanding the Mindset of the Entrepreneur
Date October 4-5, 2007

Entrepreneurs are reputedly different. And yet it is precisely because of their uniqueness that they do not work (or survive) in large corporations. Yet we do know that venture capital-backed start-ups are three times more powerful in generating patents, and significantly faster bringing products to market. What might we learn from how entrepreneurs view the value of "time" and "money", and how this affects decision-making? What might we learn from how entrepreneurs deal with the emotional intensity of an early-stage, all or nothing, bet-the-house venture?

Join Professors Henderson, Leleux, Read and Jim Pulcrano for this Discovery Event to learn more how entrepreneurial attitudes toward value creation and resource allocation differ from the corporate world.
