International Private Enterprise Group – DC Chapter

Finance Wall StreetYou may have noticed that from time to time we feature information via IPEG, which stands for International Private Enterprise Group.? Started by a number of Columbia Business School students and professionals including Reuben Abraham and Emeka Okafor, the group aims to create an opportunity for professionals interested in the intersection between business and development to network, learn from each other and hear from leaders in the field. ?

At IPEG meetings, we discuss cutting-edge work in investing in emerging economies, sustainable enterprise growth, ’Base of the Economic Pyramid’ concepts, heath and technology innovations that serve low-income communities, and many others.? All the reasons that you visit (we hope). ?While the NYC group has been around for a few years, the DC chapter is just getting started, but both welcome new faces to join its supportive community of people from across disciplines and the private, nonprofit and government sectors. ?

When: Wednesday, December 13th
