Two current MBA students at Cambridge Judge Business School, Charles Heller and Paiak Vaid (both MBA 2018), had letters to the editor published in the Financial Times newspaper less than a week apart. Charles is from the UK and Paiak is American.

Letter from Charles Heller

The letter from Charles, published on 17 May and entitled “What are we waiting for? Let’s GGGGGo!”, urged the UK not to allow issues relating to Chinese company Huawei and 5G mobile infrastructure to hinder the potential of “Industry 4.0” relating to the Internet of Things, robotics and hyperconnectivity. “The longer we wait, the more investment and opportunities go elsewhere,” he wrote.

Letter from Paiak Vaid

The letter from Paiak, published on 22 May and entitled “Landlords are cashing in on start-up venture capital,” expressed concern that innovative startup firms are spending too much money on expensive office rent and housing in cities such as London and San Francisco. “It is time for venture capitalists to ask themselves what their investments are truly paying for,” said the letter, which urged venture capitalist firms to invest in other promising cities.
