Sahar co-founded Coffee Republic, the UK's first US style coffee bar chain and built into one of the UK's most recognised high street brands.
Creating an 'entrepreneurial culture' is the latest business buzzword. Corporations can no longer rely on being big. Far more is needed to keep up with the changes: a shift to an agile, creative entrepreneurial culture. This need to be more innovative is becoming even more urgent during the latest recession. Sahar's belief is that everyone has entrepreneurial tools within them. For start-up entrepreneurs these behaviours are activated naturally through the start up process, but for corporate employees they don't come naturally. However, they can be learned and encouraged throughout the organization.
