Seminar – Competition in London Local Bus Tendering

17:00 - 18:00

Professor Michael Waterson, University of Warwick

Under recurrent procurement, the awarding of a contract to a firm may put it in an advantageous position in future tenders, which may reduce competition over time. The paper first studies the dynamics of competition for tendered contracts, focusing on factors that may generate incumbent advantage. It then applies insights from that literature to analyse empirically the evolution of competition in the market for local bus services in London using a sample of repeated contracts for the same object.

Enterprise Tuesday – Corporate-Entrepreneurship Partnerships: Marriage Made in Heaven or Hell?

18:00 - 21:00

Chaired by Sir Greg Winter, with guest panellists Robert Tansley, Investor at CIC, Anna Williamson of Genentech and Shaun Grady of AstraZeneca

This session will offer key take-aways for anyone interested in collaborative corporate-entrepreneurship partnerships. When, why and how can they deliver value? More specifically, our speakers will share their experience of collaboration and how the pathway might be mapped out. We will hear different perspectives. What is the investor’s take on this? How might the experience be different for the organisation and for the individual? What kind of mindset and business culture is required to grasp the opportunities and process the challenges? Our speakers will illustrate how negotiation and the leveraging of networks can lead to mutual benefits without necessarily having a predetermined structure. We will also hear about what it takes to develop a culture that encourages new ideas and provides support. De-risking and increasing capacity can become real possibilities if you work together. What counts in this context may not be the obvious nor is it necessarily predetermined. What does it take to be open to disruption, appreciate the alignments of interest and see the long-term gains?
