Serial Entrepreneurship, a Job or an Addiction?


Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou

event details


Wednesday, 24 February 2004


18:30 - 20:00


Hong Kon Theatre, Clement House, LSE 

Chair Professor Kevin Featherstone, Hellenic Observatory Director, LSE

Sir Stelios Haji-Ioannou, an alumnus of the LSE, has established himself as one of the UK's foremost young entrepreneurs. As founder of the easyGroup of companies, he has broken into a variety of markets offering low-cost, no-frills services.

In this lecture, he addressed the question of his motivation and interests: is the entrepreneurial urge a serial addiction from which it is difficult to break free? Why pursue such business targets? 

He also discussed doing business across different cultures.
