McKinsey’s Masterclass for Entrepreneurs 

Based on their extensive experience working with startups and investors globally, the masterclass will set out a number of key challenges startups and scale-ups are facing today and how to tackle them. Together we will explore a number of key strategic questions, including: Is this a time to look for new opportunities and secure more funding or shall I focus on conserving cash and focusing on retaining my ‘core’ customers? Is this the right moment to expand and if so, where should growth come from (new products, markets)? And what will my talent strategy look like to achieve this?
