Law and Business Center Discusses Advances in Product, Systems, and Services Innovation
Sunday, November 20, 2011
The Law and Business Center for Advancing Entrepreneurship hosted Marc Meyer, Professor at Northeastern University College of Business. He delivered a lecture titled “Advances in Product, Systems, and Services Innovation.”
Meyer said that "the most important thing if you are going to start a company is to have a great idea that solves a difficult problem and is distinctive in one of these three dimensions—technology, channel, or business model. If you can do that right and you have a good business plan that shows how it can be turned into a business, then you can indeed raise some money because again there is a lot more money out there looking to invest than there are good ideas in which to invest."
The next speaker for the Law and Business Center Speaker Series is David Weber, Professor at Creighton University School of Law. Weber will discuss "Undocumented Entrepreneurs: Business Structure and Immigration Compliance" on January 24 starting at 12:00 noon in the Blake Law Center Commons.
