The Value of Values for Founders and Entrepreneurs

September 20, 2017 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Estimated reading time: 1 minute(s)

Olin Business School, Emerson Auditorium

Co-sponsored by Bauer Leadership Center, Entrepreneurs’ Organization (EO) and Executive MBA

 Entrepreneurs sometimes fall into the trap of thinking that things like “values” and “culture” are issues they will get to once they can stop worrying about how to keep the lights on. But if values are not clearly articulated and firmly defended from a venture’s earliest days, founders have little chance of creating companies that embody their deeply-held values.  Moreover, those deeply ingrained values can be the critical differentiating ingredient in a new venture’s success formula.  In this seminar, we consider the role and importance of values in entrepreneurship, and explore the chronic challenge of standing firm on values when faced with intense growth pressures.
