Entrepreneurs go to Africa

Next month, the Global Entrepreneurship Congress will gather together thousands of entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, policymakers and other startup champions from more than 160 countries to identify new ways of helping founders start and scale new ventures around the world. At the weeklong GEC, delegates will make connections, gain insights, learn about new research, and leave ready to renew their programs, policy ideas or firm up founder skills.

GEC 2017 will take place at the heart of South Africa, in Johannesburg — a budding startup hub that is both an economic and cultural cornerstone of the country — which promises to build on the successes of previous years.

The GEC is an open, four-day conference that gathers all elements of the global entrepreneurial ecosystem. At the core of the Congress is a mix of large-scale plenary sessions for thousands of delegates and more intimate and in-depth parallel sessions conducted by leading global organizations helping entrepreneurs start and scale new businesses.


The GEC will take place March 13-16. Details at http://gec.co
