This presentation brings together recent research on different forms of crisis and their impact on entrepreneurship

About this event

Nick Williams, a Professor of Entrepreneurship at the Leeds University Business School will discuss his recent work on Chile, which includes a journal article which was co-authored with academic colleagues as well as CORFO, the main economic development agency in Chile. The research examines Chile’s economic crisis and how policy related to entrepreneurship may be able to alleviate key challenges such as inequality and growth. Nick will also attempt to reflect on links between this research and other forms of crisis, including Covid-19.

There will also be the opportunity to take part in the discussion, sharing your views on the issues currently affecting business leaders today.
