Compugen’s Harry Zarek Selected for Elite Ivey Program
Posted May 06, 2014 in Announcements
Toronto, Ontario, 6 May 2014—Compugen Inc. is pleased to announce that Harry Zarek, President and CEO, is a participant in QuantumShift, a unique leadership-development program founded by the Richard Ivey School of Business in London, Ontario and KPMG Enterprise and sponsored by TD Commercial Banking and the Globe & Mail. The program involves a week-long residency at the Ivey School, between May 4 and May 9, 2014.
Employing over 6 million Canadians, private businesses are a significant source of wealth and economic growth in Canada. They face challenges such as growing from small, start-up firms into medium sized firms, and, for many established firms experiencing rapid growth, consolidating that growth and moving to the next level to become dominant players.
QuantumShift focuses on how to lead an enterprise through exponential growth; how to attract and retain the best employees; how to uncover obstacles that may be limiting growth; how to value a venture and use strategies for moving from business plan to financial proposition; and how to build a strong network of entrepreneurial peers to share best-practices.
Over 180 successful entrepreneurs have attended QuantumShift to date, including Cameron Heaps, co-founder of Steam Whistle Brewery. Heaps is passionate about growing the craft brewing industry in Canada and says QuantumShift provided him with a unique opportunity to rethink his company's operating structure.
"When you're a young company in a high growth phase, often the structures aren't keeping up. This was an opportunity to step back and start identifying where the cracks are and how to set up your business to sustain growth," said Heaps.
