Telling a very happy story: enterprise from Brazil’s point of view
Tuesday, July 2, 2013
Often in developing an enterprise and in assessing opportunities, we limit ourselves to what is put in front of us – opportunities that are already within reach. One of the aims of the Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC) is to unlock the global potential to develop and collaborate through enterprise and entrepreneurship and, in the long term, make a difference in the world.
In Brazil, real changes are being made and I hope we can learn from them.
Jonathan Ortmans, the chair of the GEC from the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation said on opening the congress: “We have a very happy story to tell. We’re heralding a movement of powerful individuals from across the globe – legitimising entrepreneurship as a key driver for economies.”
The conference had heavy involvement from Endeavor Brasil, an organisation that provides programmes, support and opportunities for business start-ups and social enterprise across Brazil.
