Meet Cass AIR-Q Society’s Presidents of 2019/20

I am Peter Vodicka, PhD Candidate at Cass and Founder of Cass AIR-Q Society – the Cass Actuarial, Insurance, Risk and Quants Society. We are focused on bringing together students with like-minded interests, the society organises meetups, workshops and networking events allowing students to immerse themselves in the actuarial, insurance, risk and quantitative finance industries.

The Society is made up of five Co-Presidents: one undergraduate student and four master’s students. I spoke to our Co-Presidents and asked them about their time at Cass so far and their plans for AIR-Q. Meet the Co-Presidents:

Rocio Plasencia, MSc Insurance and Risk Management (2020) from Peru

I decided to study at Cass to continue my personal and professional development. Cass is not only providing me the appropriate tools to improve my skills and to progress my expertise and vision in insurance business, but also it is giving me the opportunity to get to know the worldwide leading insurance market. I have met incredible and inspiring people from all over the world. I am looking forward to all our future events at Cass AIR-Q Society.

As a Peruvian lawyer, the diversity of the modules on the MSc Insurance and Risk Management can be a big challenge, but it was one of the main reasons I chose this master’s. What I love the most about the insurance industry is the possibility of getting to know people with different perspectives and professions.

As one of the Presidents of the Cass AIR-Q Society, my objective is to contribute to the society becoming a reference point and a source of knowledge at Cass and in the industry by hosting specialised workshops and seminars.

Lucy Nondi, MSc Actuarial Management (2020) from Kenya

Located at the hub of UK’s capital, Cass attracts a blend of cultures from all over the world. This has been one of its outstanding attributes, on top of the quality of education it provides in the fields of finance and business. My first three months have been very exciting as I have been able to attend various events that have helped sharpen both my networking skills and clarify my career path.

Joining Cass AIR-Q as one of the Presidents provides a great platform for interacting and learning from different professionals who are already in the finance field. I will therefore be able to keep up to date with what is currently happening in the industry through the networking events are planning for in the new year. Cass AIR-Q will also be an opportunity for me to improve my networking skills that is really essential in my career goal as an actuary.

Evangelos Santas, MSc Financial Mathematics (2020), from Greece

Being a postgraduate student in the heart of the financial capital and being in contact with world-leading finance leaders, every day here at Cass just feels so amazing. The professional environment have made me feel back in my element and comfortable. The many helpful people I work with every day made me quickly forget about London’s rainy weather. It’s a great way to entry in the world of business!

Coming from a university in a different country, I had to face with a completely different study culture. Understanding how to approach my finance classes, as I come from a quantitative background, were challenging but incredibly rewarding.

Joining AIR-Q Society as one of its Presidents has been a great opportunity to give back to the Cass community. I’ve had the chance to meet interesting people, to learn about the industry’s current trends and to develop my organisational and communication skills by preparing interesting events, focusing on quants master’s students.

Adam Upenieks, MSc Quantitative Finance (2020), from Canada

 

Walking through the doors for the first time, I noticed that Cass is more than just a place to learn. It is a place to meet people, gain connections and learn about your peers. The atmosphere of Cass and the energy of London has made it a great place to train for a career in finance.

The biggest challenge of any graduate programme is time management. It is a crucial part of being a successful student and an invaluable skill to have for a successful career. Currently, I am balancing my time between studying for my CFA level II, taking extra-curricular Python courses, and studying a full course load at Cass. This is a challenge, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!

Being part of AIR-Q presents you with opportunities to gain invaluable knowledge through meeting industry professionals and networking. It is also a fantastic opportunity to create tailored events for our peers in the quantitative disciplines. As a President, you need to have your finger on the pulse of what is happening in the world of finance, what is interesting to your peers and to organise remarkable events. My goal this year is to bring meaningful information to my peers in the world of quantitative finance, so that we can all learn and move forward together.

Juan Sebastián de la Torre, MSc Insurance and Risk Management (2020), from Ecuador

Joining Cass and AIR-Q has been amazing and I’m enjoying every moment. The campus facilities are excellent— you have access to every resource you need for your research and studies. The master’s programme encourages you to give your best and reach your potential.

Finding a balance between studies, social life and hobbies is a must. At the moment my modules have been amazing providing me with a lot of knowledge and that encourages me to seek for more information and always be investigating about new trends in the insurance market.

I decided to run for Cass AIR-Q President because I’m passionate about the field I’m studying and it is a great opportunity to provide my classmates and Cass students with great opportunities to assist to workshops, discussions panels and events organized by the society with interesting and experienced workers in the field. My goal with Cass AIR-Q is to provide quality events that will benefit the students and increase the society group members.

David Flanigan, BSc Actuarial Science (2020), from the United Kingdom

I am in my final year of BSc Actuarial Science and have benefited hugely by making the most of the resources and facilities offered by Cass and would urge new students to do the same!

As well as my role as President of AIR-Q, I am also President of the undergraduate Society of Actuaries and hope to establish a strong link between master’s students and our undergraduate students who may be looking for mentors or advice.  Collectively, we can recognise the benefits expanding our networks to draw on our peers’ expertise.

MSc Insurance and Risk Management: The Best Decision I’ve Made

I have a clear idea of the career path I want to follow: working in insurance. Many of my fellow students studying the MSc Insurance and Risk Management have previously worked in the insurance industry and came back to study to deepen their knowledge. Studying with so many existing insurance practitioners is truly an asset and gives me the opportunity to build my commercial awareness and gain deeper knowledge about how the insurance industry works.

Thanks to support from my undergraduate university and a generous donor, a senior insurance specialist in Hong Kong, I decided to pursue my master’s straight after my undergraduate degree in Hong Kong.

It’s not always easy for international students to adapt to a new environment, but living in London for a year is definitely an awesome idea. You will meet so many people with different cultures and backgrounds, but with the same ambition. Studying at Cass is the same.

London is a great market for insurance and finance. It’s an eye-opening experience in which you learn market trends and advanced insuretech techniques.

The course in Cass is non-life insurance-focused and offers rich underwriting, law and risk management knowledge. The classes have inspired me to explore innovative ideas and are consolidating my knowledge base before engaging the industry. The programme offers a mix of theory and practical learning— I’m very excited to be going to visit Lloyds’ next term, which is the origin of the insurance market in the world.

Cass provides a variety of resources including career advice and societies with links to different programmes, which is beneficial to students for job-seeking and for our personal development.

The MSc Insurance and Risk Management is a comprehensive programme, which equips you with deep knowledge and makes you eligible for the ACII qualifications. The programme is really intensive— my first three months have already passed in a flash!

My advice to prospective students is to cherish your time at Cass and don’t forget to enjoy this city full of art and commerce.

The World is Changing: The Shipping, Trade and Finance and London Biennial

It was with great excitement that I attended the 35th Anniversary of the Costas Grammenos Centre for Shipping, Trade and Finance combined with the 9th City of London Biennial Meeting alongside my fellow MSc Shipping, Trade and Finance students.

 

This year’s conference fell under the theme “The world is changing”. Shipping business leaders, policy-makers and senior academics gathered at the International Maritime Organisation from 6th – 8th November for this event, which gave us the opportunity to interact with them and gain real-world insights.

I volunteered on the first day of the event— meeting and handing out flyers to delegates and alumni, many of whom had travelled in to London from all over the world (judging by their suitcases!)

 

90 distinguished speakers shared their views about the changes in maritime and energy sectors. Sessions included: World Economy; Banking and Finance; Investments; Oil and Other Forms of Energy; LNG Trade and Shipping; Environment and Regulations; Technology and Innovation; Dry and Tanker Market; Banking, Capital Markets and Private Equity.

The conference began at 9am. Professor Costas Grammenos, Biennial Founder and Founding Chairman of the eponymous Centre for Shipping, Trade and Finance, opened proceedings by reflecting on the Centre’s outstanding work over the past 35 years. He said, “All our graduates are simply our students who are our high flyers, they look ahead and they look high and as we say here, he or she is ‘one of us’. But ultimately our students are our most precious product.”

Attending opened my mind to many new concepts— the maritime and energy sectors are undergoing rapid changes, we need to keep up our pace with the times and have confidence in the market.

Attending this event is a great motivation for us as current STF students at Cass; I was deeply motivated by the achievements of our alumni and look forward to joining their ranks.

Cass Innovate 2019: Entrepreneurial challenges put under the microscope

I attended the event Cass Innovate which took place on the 13th November 2019 at Cass Business School.

Cass Innovate is an annual conference with the purpose of discussing entrepreneurial challenges and leading research within the entrepreneurship ecosystem. These topics are, thereby, discussed with the best of both worlds by drawing from both theoretical research and practical knowledge. The edge of this event is that everyone aspiring in entrepreneurial topics can attend – you can be a student who strives for gathering the latest research in this field or a founder of an existing business who wants to discuss recent challenges with other founders.

I was one of this year’s volunteers that supported running the event, welcoming the guests and speakers in the morning, answering questions and guiding attendees to the correct panels, workshops or talks as well as looking after the smooth course during the day and of the final panel in the evening.

As an MSc Entrepreneurship student, it was an incredibly valuable experience for two main reasons:

1) Hosting an event

I learned many things in terms of event organisation and what it takes to successfully set up and run a conference this size. The organiser Aurore Hochard gave us the responsibility to organise ourselves, react flexibly to upcoming challenges and, of course, decide when to ask for help.

2) Networking

Networking and discussing the raised issues with entrepreneurs and industry experts gave me great insight from the perspective of people who have been working in the field for 20+ years, which has definitely changed my opinion on some of the topics.

Professor Scott Moeller: What should a startup do next? IPO, Acquisition or Dual Track

My perspective on the topic of a founder exit was that it was a question to deal with in the later stage of launching a company, after successfully running it for several years. However, after attending Professor Scott Moeller’s session “What should a start-up do next? IPO, Acquisition or Dual Track”, I had a conversation with him on this topic, and he said it is crucial for an entrepreneur to think about the exit even when you haven’t yet founded your company.

From my own experience, I would encourage everyone who is an (aspiring) entrepreneur or interested in these topics to keep an eye out for next year’s conference.

My MSc in Business Analytics: a Fulfilling Master’s Degree at Cass

Why Cass?

I have long aspired to work in business.

Before joining Cass, I studied a BSc in Business Management. After graduating, I was confident in my knowledge of business theory, but I still felt that I lacked a more technical background with a quantitative standing. I knew I wanted to work in business analytics and found my niche interest at Cass Business School.

My Santander scholarship

From the start, Cass recognised my past academic efforts. I was able to throw myself into my studies fully thanks to the financial aid I received. I was happy to be one of four master’s students awarded with a Santander scholarship based on academic performance.

Professional mentoring scheme

I decided to get in touch with the careers team to move in the right direction for my career. I wanted to get familiar with data analytics and find the perfect job. I was lucky enough to be partnered with an experienced advisor who navigated me through the ups and downs of job searching. I accompanied my mentor to many meet-ups and built up my confidence in my networking abilities.

Cass boasts many industry experts and its online alumni community means that students like myself have outstanding networking opportunities, increasing our chances to succeed in today’s competitive job market. The more I learn about the Cass alumni community, the more I become interested in giving back and eventually coaching and mentoring other young professionals. If I can help someone navigate their data science journey, then I have succeeded.

Student clubs: 180-Degrees Consulting (180DC)

As part of the student-run consulting organisation, I have connected with many prominent Cass graduates and have come to see how strong our alumni ties are. For our consulting society, my team sourced a project from a non-profit City-based client. This client is a leader in the UK for providing social care events. I guided them as they went through the process of going digital. In doing so, I have broadened my master’s scope with hands-on experience. My team and I helped the company transition away from an arbitrary method of recording data, to a made-for-fit solution of using SQL (structured query language) data tables that made more sense for their product. By renovating their database’s structure, the client has much less redundant data and fewer cells to update. Our team’s deliverables, strategies for implementation and proposition for data analysis were highly appreciated by the client and we were entrusted with a long-haul project.

The Strategy Insight Lab

I joined the Strategy Insight Lab, a research project delivered by Cass in partnership with London Growth Hub and the University of Oxford. For this project, I am working on the creation of a data analytics training programme for UK microbusinesses. Working closely with experts and academics, I have helped put together a £2 million research study. I carried out a data collection activity by interviewing a group of twenty companies regarding their progress in their main business activities. I am also responsible for organising monthly events targeted at business owners, in which I network, exchange business cards and have a chance to receive exclusive training.

The future looks bright

Studying at Cass is an essential part of my career path and I look forward to what the future holds.

Strength in Diversity

Recently, the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT) hosted the first ever “Logistics and Transportation Diversity Challenge” event, a day designed to demonstrate how increased diversity in a team leads to higher productivity, performance and drives innovation.

The event drew 30 teams from companies such as Coca-Cola, DHL, National Express, Siemens, and more. As students in the MSc Global Supply Chain Management course, we have student membership to the CILT and were able to participate. So along with eight of my course mates in MSc Global Supply Chain Management, I travelled up to Newark to represent Cass Business School at the event.

After arrival and putting on our team shirts, the day began with a keynote speech highlighting the aim of the day and the significance of diversity in the work environment. Then we were off! Our team was tested through 14 challenges, requiring different levels of skill, stamina and problem solving, all while being incredibly fun. We climbed an unclimbable ladder, we learned archery, and we performed a Haka. We tested our knowledge in trivia, strategized through an assault course and more.

As we worked through the challenges, we were able to experience the benefit of diversity within our own team. Our varying backgrounds and identities helped us be strategic in earning the most points for each challenge. Each individual shined at a different event, and by the end of the day we were much closer as a team than we had been going into this diversity challenge.

While we may not have scored the top spot and coveted “Team of the Year” award, we did place 3rd out of the 30 competing, which we were very excited about! Overall, it was a great day of practicing team-building skills and meeting professionals from the logistics and transport industry. I look forward to future teams representing Cass and taking away as much from this event as we did.

MICL is the one for me!

The MICL chose me.

After working for almost five years at EY Russia, I decided that it was time to pursue a master’s degree. So, I quit my job, started to prepare for the IELTS exam and applied to a few different universities. I began receiving acceptance letters, but I was anxiously waiting for a response from Cass. As soon as I received my acceptance letter, I rejected all the other offers and announced to my family and friends that I was moving to London. That night, when my friends asked me why I chose that specific programme, my answer came down to instinct. I just had a gut feeling that the MICL* was the one for me.

*Masters of Innovation, Creativity and Leadership, aka the MICL.

 

Christmas Party

The MICL life.

I really didn’t know what to expect from the programme as it is so unique in its format and content. The first day was very exciting, and I was eager to find out what I was in for. I still remember our lecturer’s words to us: “My job here is to rewire your brain.” While it might sound odd at first, once you get into the MICL, you begin the work of unlearning old habits and way of doing things, and opening your mind to the world and to learning new things.

Like everything in the MICL, the classes were unique and diverse. The most important thing for me was that every class gave you an opportunity to engage with your classmates and teachers. The MICL is really a place where you are expected to share your thoughts and opinion. Your voice matters and is heard.

This whole year was also a great exercise of getting out of my comfort zone. And this also happened to all of my classmates. The MICL has something challenging for everyone, whether it is performing on a stage, inventing a new use for VR technology, or doing an academic research project. Generally, all the modules are a combination of business and creativity. One of the memorable examples for this was using LEGOs in Leading Creative Design module, where we used the building blocks to express our ideas, visualise them and discuss with the team.

Life outside the MICL.

Last day of class

The programme also offers a unique opportunity to work part-time on projects of the Centre for Creativity in Professional Practice. During the year, I worked on two projects that allowed me to use the acquired skills and learn new ones from professionals. One of the projects consisted of creating a prototype after doing some reaching and then testing the prototype with actual potential users. The second project was international, so I had the opportunity to connect with different people. My task was to help out with presentations and then to review pitch ideas for a contest. Even though my official work for that project is over, I still follow the news from the competition.

The Lord Mayor’s parade

What truly stuck with me was the people I got to meet along the way. Everyone in our class came from different countries, backgrounds and working experiences. We have a lawyer that now wants to shift to service design and a business owner who just wants to take things to another level. The program really helped with making self-discoveries and a better understanding of your values, needs and preferred working styles.

The best thing was, that everyone in the class was in the same mindset. This allowed us to instantly connect, help out with classes, and enjoy typical British pub culture after class. One of the best traditions we created was organising Cultural Dinners: once a month, one of us would find a restaurant with our country’s cuisine. At the restaurant, we would enjoy the food while the host would tell us stories about their home country and the culture.

This year spent at Cass has been incredibly special to me. At times it was tough and stressful, but always enjoyable. In the end, I got so much more than I ever expected— and I say this even though I still have to finish my dissertation to get the actual degree!

AIR-Q Insuretech Forum: the Future of Insurance is Now!

Tech is a game-changer across all industries, but none more than insurance.

I was delighted to work on this year’s Actuarial, Insurance, Risk and Quants (AIR-Q) society forum. This year, we selected a focus on insuretech, which is a very pertinent issue within the insurance space. The event brings together students from the Actuarial and Insurance and Risk master’s cohorts as well as insurance industry practitioners and is held at Cass Business School.

The impact of technology cuts across both market needs and service delivery for insurance providers. As Co-President of the AIR-Q society, myself and the rest of the committee felt it was important for students to consider the changing landscape as we prepare to start our professional lives in the sector.

Through keynote addresses provided by esteemed guests Madeline Bailey, James Norman, Massimo Vascotto and Rahul Mathur, attendees got a chance to listen in on how insuretech is expected to transform the future industry roles and market needs.

Speakers illustrated how the sector is already changing. For example, the US-based insuretech startup Lemonade uses AI for most of its operations, including underwriting and claims management. This presents opportunities for “insurance-on-demand” which could be as influential a disruptor as Uber was in the taxi sector.

The speakers’ talks were followed by an interactive panel discussion. One of my key takeaways was that insuretech can be a tool for the optimisation of insurance products and services. Madeline Bailey gave an example of how the Insurewave platform uses blockchain technology to make marine insurance more efficient, thus providing better protection for the very complex maritime logistics sector.

For students to gain an edge in this changing market, they need to equip themselves with modern skills such as programming and data analysis. It is therefore clear why Cass shows support for this by offering modules such as Python Programming, Machine Learning, Modelling and Data Analysis and VBA programming among others.

It was not all praise for insuretech though. Insuretech does indeed present new opportunities, but it is also important to remember that at the centre of it all lies the end-consumer of insurance. Domain knowledge and a good understanding of human factors are crucial in the successful implementation of insuretech. This provided a very balanced debate and an engaging learning experience for both speakers and students.

Leading up to the event, myself and my Co-Presidents Maria Bou-Rizk (MSc Insurance and Risk, 2019), Vinit John (MSc Insurance and Risk, 2019) and Peter Vodicka (PhD candidate in Actuarial Science) worked with support of Cass’ events team to book the speakers and venue. With immense gratitude, we received further support by the Faculty of Actuarial Science and Insurance, with Dr. Simone Krummaker moderating the panel discussion. It was an incredible learning experience that tested our teamwork and organisational skills.

At the end of the event, we hosted a networking session which provided the chance for all the attendees to mingle. Overall, it was a great evening and I look forward to many more successful forums!

Cass Real Estate Club Brings Together Speakers, Students, and Alumni at 2019 Conference

The Cass Real Estate Club recently convened its eighth annual May flagship conference at BAFTA Hall, Piccadilly, hosting industry-leading speakers from premier property firms for the 2019 Cass Real Estate Club Summit on Global Investment Strategy.

Focusing this year on global investment strategy, the all-day conference featured exciting panel discussions on a range of topics including global capital flows, innovations in real estate, property development and an intriguing investigation of ultra-high net worth and institutional investment strategies. With leading speakers from premier firms such as UBS, Knight Frank, GIC, CBRE Global Investors, Hines, HFF, Grosvenor, PGIM, LandSec and many more in attendance, over 250 attendees had the opportunity to hear from and network with industry leaders on a variety of subjects in today’s dynamic property market.

Keynotes delivered by Concrete Venture Capital partner, Chris Stephenson, and UBS’s UK Chief Investment Officer, Geoffrey Yu, on the future of innovation in the built environment and global macro-economic outlook offered context as to where the property market is heading near term. Their speeches decoded what we can expect as forthcoming graduates in a constantly innovating built environment.

The attendance and caliber of speakers on the day is not only a testament to the reputation of Cass, but also to the Business School’s continued commitment to engaging current master’s students with both industry leaders and our extensive alumni network. Nearly half of the speakers, all managing directors and department heads of prestigious firms, were Cass alumni or are affiliated with the Business School through professional or personal connections.

The level of engagement from alumni demonstrated the fantastic camaraderie fostered at Cass through an exacting education and continued networking opportunities post-graduation. The nearly six-month process of planning, pitching, booking and organizing the event underscores the hard work and dedication of the entire Real Estate Club team, with support from Cass and the events office.

The event is moving into its ninth year in 2020 and has evolved over the years to become a student-led initiative. Be it crafting panel content, leading sponsorship development for the club, and or gaining experience in organizing a boutique industry event, the conference provides students the opportunity to work with industry leaders.

Events such as Cass REC 2019 are the result of the Cass Real Estate Club’s continued commitment to supporting the Business School’s strategic goals. For nearly a decade, the club has done so through its two-fold mandate: providing forums for networking and learning so that master’s students and alumni can connect; and raising funds for the Real Estate Club’s scholarship initiative which benefits two incoming MSc Real Estate or MSc Real Estate Investment students each year. Successful venture partnerships with Drooms and Altus Group, along with strategic media partnerships with CoStar and Real Estate Fund Intelligence, made Cass REC 2019 a fun, successful and fruitful day of insight and networking. The club thoroughly looks forward to welcoming everyone next year to Cass REC 2020!

EntrepreneursTalk@Cass Returns to Cass Business School!

From left to right: James Song (MSc Entrepreneurship at Cass, 2019), Aurore Hochard (Head of Entrepreneurship Programmes at Cass), Emily Brooke MBE (Founder of Beryl), Martin Mignot (Partner at Index Ventures)

EntrepreneursTalk@Cass returned with a bang to Cass Business School on June 5th, 2019 organized by Aurore Hochard, Head of Entrepreneurship Programmes at the University.

Martin Mignot and Emily Brooke MBE discussed advice for entrepreneurs seeking funding, and their experiences as an investor and investee in the transportation industry. They were interviewed by James Song, a Product Designer at Founders Factory and MSc Entrepreneurship (2019) student at Cass who stated, “It was a great occasion to learn from the experiences of a couple of successful people both from the VC side and entrepreneur side!”

Martin Mignot, a partner at Index Ventures, exclaimed early in the evening that his favorite part about the industry is the fact that “I get paid to learn and work with incredible people” and how much he enjoys helping solve problems for early-stage companies. According to Mr. Mignot, “Every company, no matter how successful, is just a sum of problems to solve” and he enjoys the process of finding solutions.

Index Ventures is typically Seed and Series A investments, and Mr. Mignot commented, “We like to be the first institution but not the first money in” for investments made. This is fairly common in the industry, with angel investors taking on the most risk and venture capital investors signing on later. The UK is a great ecosystem for early-stage investment due to the various tax benefits that angel investors make, especially EIS and SEIS.

SEIS stands for Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme and offers a 50% tax break for investors that put in part of the first £150,000 for a qualified startup. Enterprise Investment Scheme (EIS) offers a 30% income tax reduction for investments up to £1 million for an individual and £12 million for a company. These are some of the highest tax benefits in the western world for angel investment, and this helps to make London and the United Kingdom a healthy market for new startups.

Emily Brooke is the Founder of Beryl (formerly Blaze), and her company has benefited from this great ecosystem, getting early investment from the Richard Branson family, Index Ventures, and others. Beryl has gone through some rough patches, and Mrs. Brooke discussed the problems they have overcome when expanding internationally including trademark issues that forced them to change their name. Her biggest advice for entrepreneurs is to “Get on with it” when getting started, and to “Focus on doing one thing properly before diversifying”.

Mrs. Brooke’s advice for getting investment is to find investors that will let you retain a lot of control over your own company, stating “Our goal is light-touch investment” which has “…given us a lot of freedom”. Apparently, this approach has worked well, as Beryl has won multiple awards for their bike lights, including the iF Design Award (2019), Eurobike Industry Award (2018) and many others while expanding her product sales across Europe, the United States and Japan since its founding in the United Kingdom in 2012.

Emma Rowe, MSc Entrepreneurship (2019) at Cass Business School, attended the event and said “[the evening] was incredibly valuable. I loved having an insight into the speakers’ personal journeys, particularly the challenges they faced and who inspired them to do what they do today.”

The evening ended with a networking session and drinks, where up-and-coming entrepreneurs mingled with their experienced counterparts. The excited conversations were a sign that the next event will be well attended! These types of events are what help Cass Business School to stand out among its peers, and the evening offered real value to students and industry professionals alike.

The next EntrepreneursTalk@Cass event will be taking place on July 3rd, 2019 at Cass Business School attended by another Entrepreneur and Venture Capital duo. Please find details here.
