Franchise entrepreneur supports business startups for Global Entrepreneurship Week

Atul Pathak, managing director of Appt Corporation and franchisee of 20 McDonald’s restaurants, will be supporting budding entrepreneurs and new business owners at the British Library on 14 November as part of the Library’s initiative to mark Global Entrepreneurship Week.

The event, ‘Absolute Beginners’, which is aimed at people who are interested in starting a business or at the early stages of starting a business, will see Atul provide advice on topics including franchising, finance, customer service and business planning via speed mentoring sessions. The aim is to encourage business success and to help business owners avoid the common pitfalls associated with running a business.

Atul is no stranger to entrepreneurship and established his first McDonald’s franchise at Southall in 2003. He has grown his restaurant portfolio significantly over the past eight years across north and north west London and employs over 1,500 people. He has also been recognised for his business achievements and was the recipient of the Asian Leadership in Franchising Award in 2010 and the British Franchise Association’s Silver Award in 2007.

Speaking about his involvement with the event Atul commented: "When you are considering setting up a business or have recently started running your own business, the advice that established business owners can provide from their own experiences is invaluable. I am looking forward to sharing my experiences and helping people to take their business idea to the next level.”

Business owners or budding entrepreneurs can book to attend a free speed mentoring session with Atul and six other business experts by visiting the British Library’s website:
