Founders vs CEOs – A Game of Thrones

Enterprise Hub at London Tech Week Presents: Founders vs CEOs – A Game of Thrones

As 2020 – the year of surreal – turns into the ‘new normal’, the Royal Academy of Engineering asks who is best placed to lead your tech startups through the uncharted? Should we put our faith in the foresight of revolutionaries or is it time for experience and hindsight to take the helm? The Enterprise Hub will go where HBO and George R.R. Martin dare not: in search of satisfactory conclusions.

We know all too well that the head of the table can be a battleground. Despite our best intentions, opportunity is turned to ash if friendly fire is left unchecked. On Tuesday afternoon we will discuss the benefits of backing a founding visionary versus an experienced CEO. You’ll hear stories of winners, losers and hard-earned lessons learned from those who lived through it all.
