Imperial College Management School presents Entrepreneurship Masterclass (Hong Kong)

21 September 2001
For Immediate Use

The Imperial College Management School is to share its entrepreneurial expertise with an international audience in Hong Kong on Thursday 27 September 2001.

Professor Sue Birley, Director of the Entrepreneurship Centre is to present the Masterclass, Entrepreneurship and Imperial College. The lecture will give examples of the College's success in spinning out companies from the intellectual property of students and academics, and look at lessons for entrepreneurial good practice.

The event is organised by the Imperial College Alumni Association of Hong Kong (ICAAHK), a major centre of Management School alumni overseas. Guest of honour in Hong Kong will be Professor David Norburn, Director of the Management School.

The audience will be made up of a number of key local figures and Imperial College alumni.

The Masterclass programme allows Imperial College alumni to develop social and business connections, and also to benefit from continuing education. Since the launch of the Management School Alumni Network in 2000, a main priority has been to develop a Masterclass programme for alumni overseas.

The Masterclass will take place in the Hotel Intercontinental Hong Kong on 27 September 2001.
