The Cairnes School/Whitaker Institute Inaugural Professorial Lecture Series continued on Wednesday 20 November with Professor Jonathan Levie, recently appointed Professor of Entrepreneurship & Regional Development. Drawing on 35 years of working with a diverse range of national and regional entrepreneurial ecosystems across the world, Professor Levie discussed how diverse regional stakeholders can cooperate to enhance entrepreneurship within their region, including third level education institutes, financial institutions, corporates, local government, accelerators, enterprise agencies, and above all, entrepreneurs and business angels. He also contrasted the role of national government with that of regional ecosystem stakeholders. The talk outlined plans for a new Centre for Entrepreneurial Growth & Scaling at the J.E. Cairnes School of Business & Economics.
Professor Levie was in conversation with Senator Pádraig Ó Céidigh, Entrepreneur and Independent Senator in Seanad Éireann.
