About the Speaker:
Professor Joe Haslam, Executive Director of the 'Owners Scaleup Program' at IE Business School in Madrid - a programme designed specifically for fast growing companies that want to scaleup. IE was ranked by the Financial Times as the 3rd best Business School in Europe in their 2017 rankings. In 1998, Prof Haslam was on the founding Team of Marrakech, a Dublin based e-procurement company that raised over $75m in Venture Capital and scaled to over 250 people. He is now the co-founder and Chairman of Hot Hotels, the first company from Spain to be accelerated by the Techstars program in the USA (Boston, Summer 2015). Born in Limerick, Joe is a graduate of University College Cork where he has both a B. Comm and an MSc. in Accounting, Finance & Information Systems. He also has an MBA from IE Business School. Joe has lived in Madrid for the past 15 years.
About the Seminar:
Professor Haslam will take a look at indigenous entrepreneurship with a different perspective to the Silicon Valley Model and during the Seminar (8.15 am) will discuss:
Growth doesn’t make you a scaleup
Small, and want to grow? Big, and want to hold on? Get the basics right
Go in at the right time (it’s later than you think)
Embrace the era of ‘big’
Ignoring the startup hype
It’s not all about unicorns
The advantages of scale
Culture at scale
About the Master Class:
At 9.30 am the Master Class will feature an intense workshop with Joe where he will take individuals through their specific challenges and give advice, suggestions and an opinion on how best to scale your business. This part of the morning is limited to 25 people on a ‘first come, first served basis’.
