The global entrepreneurial revolution is growing
Investments in early-stage and growth-stage companies are reaching new highs. Total value creation of the global startup economy has reached $2.3 trillion over the last three years.
This revolution isn’t just happening in established startup hubs like Silicon Valley, London, and Shanghai – it’s happening in thousands of small and emerging ecosystems and communities around the world.
Four days of actionable intelligence, collaboration and collective action
Hosted in a different rising entrepreneurial city each year, the Global Entrepreneurship Congress is four days of actionable intelligence, collaboration and collective action. It brings together thousands of voices, from more than 200+ countries to participate in creating one inclusive global ecosystem by networking, learning, and sharing.
Since its inception in 2009, the GEC has created opportunities for founders to share new business models and connect with experienced mentors and investors who help them scale. It has hosted thought leaders challenging the status quo; policymakers intent on incentivising entrepreneurs and removing barriers, and academics exploring new ways of working and new sources of data.
All attendees make invaluable connections that grow their footprint in entrepreneurship and innovation ecosystems around the world.
