Purpose Driven Business – how to start and build a business with purpose at the centre

    In support of the 15th anniversary of the Global Entrepreneurship Network (GEN) and their annual Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) the Business & IP Centre will be hosting Purpose Driven Business, to celebrate the GEW 2022 theme of Grow With Purpose.

    This event is taking place at the British Library and will be live streamed online.

    For those joining us in person, the event will be followed by a networking reception with drinks and canapés, where you can meet the speakers, as well as other attendees. There will also be the opportunity to enter a prize draw with prizes donated by the speakers.

    For those joining us online, the panel and talk will run from 18.00 – 20.30.

    Our panel of speakers, representing a range of purpose-led businesses, will come together to share their expertise and business stories. They’ll question approaches from the past, challenge the status quo of today and discuss how all of these learnings can help build more resilient and focused businesses. We will discuss why having a ‘purpose’ is central to every start-up and how honing in on yours will help to drive growth and ensure your business thrives in the current climate.
