Global Entrepreneurship Congress 2014 in Moscow, Russia

GEC2014  


Between Monday 17th and Thursday 20th March, business leaders from 150 countries gathered in Moscow, Russia, for the Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC) 2014.  The GEC is an inter-disciplinary gathering of startup champions from around the world, where entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, thought leaders and policymakers work together to help bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare.  Now in its sixth year, the GEC contributes to the expansion of a global entrepreneurial ecosystem by bringing together the National Hosts of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW), which is celebrated every year in November by millions of enterprising individuals around the world.

Malta was represented at the GEC 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. Each year, the Institute collaborates with various partner organisations to hold a programme of events to promote entrepreneurship, creativity and innovation.  In November 2013, over 1,000 people participated in seven events in Malta, including the launch of a handbook on entrepreneurship education, co-authored by Dr. Baldacchino and her collegue Ms. Shirley Pulis Xerxen, and published by St. Nicholas College in collaboration with The Edward de Bono Institute; the Malta Startup Weekend finals; a crafts fair on Campus; the Junior Chamber International Best Business Plan Competition finals; two visits to Malta Enterprise for University of Malta students; and the LEAD Events Conference entitled ‘People Create: HR’s Contribution to Creativity and Innovation’.  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 2014 and beyond.
