In November 2016, millions of young people in over 160 countries around the world celebrated Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW). This event is designed to connect aspiring and inspiring entrepreneurs, helping them embrace originality, imagination and ingenuity through local and global activities.
Since GEW's inception in 2008, The Edward de Bono Institute has proudly been the official National Host for this event in Malta, and collaborates each year with various partner organisations to put together exciting programmes of activities to join this global celebration of entrepreneurship.
This November, GEW in Malta included the following events:
Edward de Bono Institute Director Dr Leonie Baldacchino and Department of Management resident academic Dr Nathaniel Massa, both from the University of Malta, recently joined delegates from 173 counties at the Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC), which was held in Johannesburg, South Africa in March 2017.
Steven Diacono, who is reading for a Master in Creativity and Innovation at The Edward de Bono Institute, recently attended an 'Innovation Catalyst’ course, ‘Fostering Professional Skills for Circular Economy Transition - A Systemic Approach to Water Management’ in Valencia, Spain.
In December 2016, Fiona Anderson, who is reading for a Master in Creativity and Innovation at The Edward de Bono Institute, was selected to attend a short course entitled 'Making Change Happen: Business Models for Climate Change Technologies and Innovation' in Valencia, Spain.
