Inspiring Tomorrow's Entrepreneurs

Inspiring Tomorrow's Entrepreneurs

(NewsUSA)- In 2008, from Nov. 17 to 23, millions of young people will attend events and network online - all to become tomorrow's entrepreneurs.
What will connect business-minded youth from over 70 countries? Global Entrepreneurship Week, the first worldwide event of its kind, was founded by the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and the Make Your Mark Foundation to inspire and connect people. Governments, businesses, non-profits, schools, teachers and thousands of other organizations will participate.
For example, Commonwealth Capital Advisors, an American investment banking advisory services firm serving entrepreneurs worldwide, will give away 1 million eBooks telling aspiring entrepreneurs how to raise enough capital to start a business. Chile will hold a 10k race. The Netherlands will launch the week from the floor of Euronext, a pan-European stock exchange.
"We need engaged citizens who understand the value of rewarding innovation - from lowering the cost of doing business, to pursuing national policies that accelerate the development and adoption of new technologies in energy, health and other fields," said Dr. Susan Hockfield, president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
However, the week won't just instruct future entrepreneurs in markets ranging from fashion to engineering. Many events hope to facilitate discussion about poverty, climate change and sustainability - issues that effect the business world. Organizations hope to tap the next generation's enterprising and idealistic spirit to solve issues, like creating sustainable economic growth worldwide.
The week will help young people from Ecuador to Afghanistan to the U.S. exchange ideas and network. In an increasingly globalized world, open and international communication seems vital to solving today's - and tomorrow's - issues.
As British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said, "By unleashing the creativity and ideas of young people all over the world, we can create the successful products and businesses of tomorrow.
