Event Summary


Join us at our final Corporate Competitive Edge Series event with Professor Raomal Perrera of Entrepreneurship at the UCD School of Business where he will discuss the topic of 'How to create a business model innovation'. Professor Raomal Perrera believes a company's long term competitive success depends on its ability to create an innovative business model. Raomal currently teaches and studies design thinking, entrepreneurship, innovation and the management of rapidly growing companies. He consults on innovation, design thinking and business modelling with large corporates.

Raomal is an educator and loves to work with entrepreneurs. However, his primary role is helping established businesses make innovation work. He uses an interesting mix of his hands-on experience of building successful companies and the more recent experience of academia and research in helping companies GET, KEEP and GROW their customers, using a number of highly effective tools and processes.

Raomal has an extensive international network of contacts and was the first recipient of the Irish Software Association’s (ISA) Outstanding Software Achievement Award in 2003. He was also a finalist in the Ernst & Young ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ awards.
