Clara Angotti, President of Next Pathway, was a guest industry speaker at the Rotman LEADS Industry Event on May 17, 2021. The purpose of Industry Events is to give MBA candidates an opportunity to connect with senior executives on a multitude of topics.
Clara started her talk by providing some interesting statistics on entrepreneurs in Canada. “Companies, like Next Pathway, that employ fewer than 500 employees, employ more than 90% of Canada’s private sector workforce, make up 30% of Canada’s GDP, are responsible for 25% of Canada’s exports and 95% of new job creation. Entrepreneurship is a powerful force that drives innovation, productivity, job creation and economic growth,” said Clara.
Clara gave the audience an overview of her 30-year career and the 4 key lessons she’s learned along the way.
