Entrepreneurship to be stressed in a week of activities here

For the fifth year, the country is involved in Global Entrepreneurship Week, a week-long series of activities.

Perhaps the most inviting for those in business is a seminar Nov. 26 titled “12 steps to convert your company into a big business.” That is at 8:30 a.m. at Parque La Libertad in Desamparados.

Another activity is a forum on entrepreneurship for refugees.

That is at 8 a.m. next Thursday in the Hotel Radisson.

A handful of government ministries are involved, including the Ministerio de Economía Industria y Comercio that houses the small business initiative.

The week is being observed from next Monday through Nov. 22 in 160 countries.

According to the international sponsors, “Global Entrepreneurship Week is a celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. During one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.”

The events here are free and are outlined on the commerce ministry Web site HERE! The ministry said that digital platform would be launched by the Ministerio de Cultura y Juventud that will provide financial information to business people in the cultural area, such as gallery operators and individual artists.
