The Management School is delighted to announce the next event in our ULMS Masterclass webinar series which will focus on the development of a start-up business with environmental and social responsibility at its core.
The webinar will be delivered by Dr Katherine Gunderson who is the founder of Grand Bequest, a property technology company that empowers individuals to save old buildings. Grand Bequest uses state-of-the-art technology and works with communities to introduce data analytics, stakeholder participation, transparency, and alternative financing support to change the way public and private groups work together to improve their communities.
In this session we will discover where the idea for this particular start-up came from, the journey from its beginnings to the present day and why more companies should be focusing on issues which tackle society’s big challenges such as climate change and sustainability.
