Knowledge Conglomerate to launch ventures

The Knowledge Conglomerate (an associate of MTI Consulting), encouraged by the expected economic upturn in Sri Lanka and its potential impact on new knowledge based businesses, has announced their search for Corporate Entrepreneurs, who will be charged with leading the several knowledge-based ventures that the company plans to launch in the near future.

The company said this is a great opportunity for corporate entrepreneurs to experiment with their skills and abilities. “The concept of Corporate Entrepreneurs is a new concept and offers entrepreneurial professionals to work with The Knowledge Conglomerate to set-up entirely new knowledge based businesses, sharing both the risks and rewards that come with it,” Hilmy Cader, Venture Promoter of The Knowledge Conglomerate, was quoted as saying in the statement.

Over a period of three years, starting April 2010, The Knowledge Conglomerate plans to evaluate the feasibility and launch knowledge-based ventures in some of the following domains, including joint ventures and strategic alliances.

The key areas that the company plans to focus on are Business Magazines, KPO/BPO’s,Socio Economic Research,Technology,Education:Degrees/Masters, Event Management, Legal & tax Advisory, Energy & Environment, Company Secretarial, Investment Research, Market Research, Head Hunting/Executive Search/Marketing Communications, Training & Executive Education,Corparate Finance/Fund Management,Webcom Design etc.

The search for Corporate Entrepreneurs will focus on those with experience that can be converted to a profitable competence and have the desire that can be converted to a solid commitment to start-up a new venture and go through the trying challenges of such a process. “They should be able to operate in a no-frills, hands-on and young organization which means you roll up your sleeves and do what it takes to make the business a success, minus the unproductive cubicles, secretaries and assistants,” said Mr. Cader, who is also the CEO of MTI Consulting.

Further explaining the concept, he said that, “These are all dedicated positions that offers flexible work times, durations and place of work. It is not a part-time option while engaging in another job or a directly competing job / industry.”
