Global Entrepreneurship Congress 2015 in Milan, Italy

GEC2015 

Between Monday 16th and Thursday 19th March 2015, a delegation from Malta joined business leaders from 150 countries for the Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC) 2015 in Milan, Italy.  Now in its seventh year, the GEC draws together a broad collection of voices from across the entrepreneurial spectrum including entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, thought leaders and policymakers who work together to explore the best approaches in helping to build one global entrepreneurial ecosystem.  

The GEC included dozens of related parallel events conducted by leading global organisations actively supporting the spread of an entrepreneurial culture. These included the Start + Scale Forum, where experienced entrepreneurs shared strategies for success with up-and-coming startups; the Research + Policy Summit,  which explored innovative policies and programmes from around the world that promote new firm formation; the Entrepreneurial Cities Forum, which highlighted metropolitan areas with thriving startup ecosystems; and the Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) Annual Meeting for host organizations to plan their 2015 GEW campaigns.

Malta was represented at the GEC by University of Malta academics Professor Sandra Dingli and Dr Nathaniel Massa, Malta Association of Women in Business President Doris Sammut Bonnici, AIESEC representative Elizabeth Pulo, and ICT Student Association President and officials Etienne Buttigieg, Matthew Cassar, Rebecca Kai Cassar and Roberto Mangion. The delegation was led by Dr Leonie Baldacchino, Director of The Edward de Bono Institute for the Design and Development of Thinking at the University of Malta, which has been the National Host for GEW since its inception in 2008.  At the GEC, Dr Baldacchino discussed the Maltese campaign with the other GEW hosts, celebrated best practice in promoting entrepreneurship, and shared ideas for advancing the GEW campaign in Malta and beyond.
