The Journey of a Start Up, and the role of company culture

in making the difference between success and failure

Michelle Wright, Chief Executive of Cause4, trained at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and played the violin professionally. A chartered marketer, manager and fundraiser, Michelle set up B-Corporation and social enterprise Cause4 in May 2009 and since has undertaken major strategic and business development projects, including campaign developments with a number of national charities and consultancy work for FTSE 100 brands developing their cultural sponsorship programmes. Michelle also specialises in philanthropy, having recently developed a number of major philanthropy projects for charities and corporates, and having set up new philanthropic foundations for sports stars, artists and entrepreneurs.

In 2014 Michelle was awarded the IWEC award for outstanding entrepreneurial achievement, and represented the UK as a National Champion for Entrepreneur of the Year in the European Business Awards. In 2015 she was recommended to the Maserati 100 list for Entrepreneurs that ‘give back’ and was voted by Salt Magazine as one of the top five compassionate business leaders in the UK, alongside leaders such as Richard Branson.
