Immigrant entrepreneurs are more innovative than traditional businesses in the UK.

In these unprecedented times of remote working, and the “new normal”, diverse entrepreneurs are demonstrating the adaptability and innovation necessary to prosper under conditions that drive traditional businesses to the wall.

PBLINK is hosting a brand new webinar to showcase 12 very experienced diverse entrepreneurs on Thursday 22nd of October 2020, 11am -2pm. The agenda and registration are available here

In this webinar, we uncover the secrets of the “immigrant mindset”, as championed by renowned business author Glenn Llopis in his article for globally respected Harvard Business Review.

In his article Llopis, himself a Cuban American, describes the typical attributes of entrepreneurs starting a life and a business beyond their native shores: pioneers who stay on their toes and see opportunities everywhere, while building a lasting legacy. This killer combination of agility and responsiveness, fused with the determination to fulfil a long-term plan, is just what drove Pierre Morad Omidyar, an immigrant from France, to revolutionise e-commerce by founding eBay, and Greek American Peter M. Nicholas to build Boston Scientific, which now employs over 25,000 people. In fact, Forbes Magazine reveals that 40% of Fortune 500 companies are founded by immigrants or their children, including Google, McDonalds, Pfizer and eBay.

We need new skills and a fresh mindset for a changing business arena.

These 12 diverse entrepreneurs will discuss workforces, customers and collaborations. – three pillars of a successful business.

How different cultures perceive organisational charts, company culture and loyalty. Can the cultural background of your employee affect the customer experience she is creating? Does every entrepreneur understand the value of mentoring and collaborations or is it all about the competition?
