Ariadne Capital founder Julie Meyer launched her new book Welcome to Entrepreneur Country this week, at an exclusive event supported by Seven Hills at ‘The Gherkin’ in the City of London to an audience of high profile business leaders .
The stellar line up of speakers at the launch, hosted at Coutts, included Alastair Lukies, CEO of Monitise; John Paleomylites, Founder and MD of BeatThatQuote; Daniel Ishag, Founder of early Ariadne client Espotting, and Mark Littlewood, Head of the Institute of Economic Affairs.
A lively panel debate focused on the vision for Britain as an ‘Entrepreneur Country’: what this means and how we can get there. The speakers discussed how to keep the entrepreneurial spirit alive as a business grows, and how the “Goliaths” of big business need to work with the entrepreneurial “Davids”.
Julie Meyer said: “From their hard graft, their sleepless nights, entrepreneurs build the future.”
Julie Meyer is founder and CEO of Ariadne Capital, founder of Entrepreneur Country, managing partner of Ariadne Capital Entrepreneurs Fund [ACE], and hosts the annual ‘Follow The Entrepreneur Investor Summit’.
The launch followed a powerful media campaign from Seven Hills that saw articles about Welcome to Entrepreneur Country appear in the Financial Times, The Sunday Telegraph, the Evening Standard, The Times and The Independent.
In Welcome to Entrepreneur Country, Julie issues a stark warning – that Britain must follow the entrepreneur in order to survive the recession and see the economy grow. She presents a challenging 15-point manifesto aimed at generating growth and extolling the crucial role of the entrepreneur in kick-starting it.
