Global Entrepreneurship Week is approaching and this year we will hold an extraordinary discussion about an ordinary topic: 9 out of 10 venture-backed startups fail, according to the Startup Genome Project, so it is about time we celebrated failure!
Join a panel discussion featuring international entrepreneurs from the Academy’s Leaders in Innovation Fellowships and Africa Prize for Engineering Innovation programmes and UK-based entrepreneurs from the Enterprise Hub about the lessons they have learnt along their entrepreneurial journeys which have built their resilience to innovate and disrupt.
