Professor Nigel Pye, Shows IM Head, Nicky Daniels, The ‘Trading Floor’ At The Essex Business SchoolNovember 10, 2016
Having an excellent relationship with the local academic institutions is very important to Nicky Daniels, Head of Innovation Martlesham (IM).
Recently she visited the Essex Business School and met with Professor Nigel Pye to discuss areas of collaboration the two organisation could focus on. As IM has a business incubator it was a natural facility to start the discussions with and how the incubator could offer a bridge between the two organisations. The incubator could provide start-ups from the Business School with business nurturing, mentoring and entrepreneurial support for those wishing to commercialise an idea.
Also up for discussion was the opportunity for the Business School MBA class to visit IM and a date for the visit was agreed.
Once the meeting had finished Nicky was delighted to be given a tour of Business School at the Essex University campus and was very impressed by the ‘Trading Floor’ simulator, equipped with Bloomberg terminals, where students can practice their wealth creating skills. “The MBA students are looking forward to visiting IM at Adastral Park later in the month to learn more about the ecosystem and how it successfully nurtures such effective businesses“ says Nigel.
