The Road to Rio

Over 1200 international delegates from 150 countries are expected to land in Rio over the next few days. They will be gathering for the 5th Global Entrepreneurship Congress hosted by Global Entrepreneurship Week, Endeavor Brazil, and the Kauffman Foundation. In a very short period of time, the Global Entrepreneurship Congress has evolved into the premier interdisciplinary gathering of startup champions from around the world—where entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, thought leaders and policymakers work together to bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare.

The 2013 Congress takes place from March 18 – 21, where thinkers, doers and leaders from diverse economies around the world will focus on how both policymakers and startup communities can better understand each other and work together to promote an environment more conducive to startups and the growth of young firms. The Congress will focus on awareness and celebration, experiential education, startup cities, financing growth, smart top down government policies and strategies for scaling up.  You can find out more at
