Venue: Lecture Theatre 0, Department of Engineering, Trumpington Street, Cambridge

Building billion dollar companies

Guest speakers:

Dr David Cleevely knows a thing or two about building businesses. A serial entrepreneur and investor, he has worked at the heart of the Cambridge Cluster on numerous ventures including telecoms consultancy Analysys, web based antibody company Abcam (ABC.L); and G femto base station company, 3WayNetworks. Abcam, which he co-founded in 1998 and was Chairman of until 2009, currently has a $1.5bn valuation - not bad for a company that starting selling antibodies door-to-door on a bike! David is the guest speaker at the launch session of the 2014/15 Enterprise Tuesday series on 4 November at the University of Cambridge's Department of Engineering. He will focus on telling the Abcam story but also look at other billion dollar companies that have come out of Cambridge. It's a good opportunity for those working in or contemplating a future in entrepreneurship to learn more about growing successful businesses.
