The event started with a joint presentation by Alice Klat, Director of the Ideation Center, the leading think tank for Strategy& Middle East, and Melissa Rizk, Fellow with the Ideation Center, onthe entrepreneurial and investment ecosystem across the region, and the challenges involved in scaling up
This situation presents two distinct, but related leadership challenges; the leadership difficulties businesses face when scaling up
and the need for strong business voices in the political leadership of our region.
The UK is brimming with entrepreneurial energy and now is the time to focus on empowering businesses to scale-up - scaling up
being the act of growing quickly, whether through creating new jobs, increasing turnover or investing in a business.
