An International Conference on Democracy and Entrepreneurship
With Keynote Speaker Hernando de Soto and featuring Glenn F. Tilton, Jesus Estanislao, Karen Kerrigan, Sherwood Neiss, Linda Darragh, and many other high-profile entrepreneurship experts and business leaders.
Join us on April 9-10 in Chicago to focus on Democracy that Delivers for Entrepreneurs. Meet entrepreneurs and their supporters who are making a difference in establishing a level playing field in markets around the world and learn more about the interplay between markets and democracy. This two-day international conference will focus on:
- How entrepreneurs help build democratic societies
- Policy solutions that foster entrepreneurship
- Establishing an “ecosystem” of entrepreneurship support
- Stories of successful entrepreneurs from a variety of industries and backgrounds
- What business associations, governments, investors, donors, and entrepreneurs themselves can do to create growth and opportunity in a dynamic marketplace
This conference is meant to be a focal point for a larger effort highlighting entrepreneurship and a platform for institutionalizing and popularizing successful approaches to entrepreneurship-focused reforms, not a one-off event. It will bring together an integrated audience of international development and policy experts, donor organizations and foundations, thought leaders, businesses, and entrepreneurs.
