On September 24th we are founding the 1st Entrepreneurs World Summit with the purpose of contributing to the development of society on a global platform through increased entrepreneurship.
Our vision is to become one of the world’s premier arenas for influential, international entrepreneurs, working to create even greater companies and expand the entrepreneurial-base becoming more influential with a common desire to create a better world.
Massive experience base of participating entrepreneurs
The participating entrepreneurs meet to gather inspiration, gain knowledge and advance business opportunities, as well as lay a good foundation for this arena in the future.
Joining us are entrepreneurs that own and sit in the board of over 2000 companies employing over 200 000 people with a turnover of over 100 Bn Euros representing all business sectors. The common denominator is that they have founded, built and own mid-sized and large-sized international companies. There will be representatives from a broad spectrum of business sectors including Financial Services, Education, Health Care, IT, Software, Telecom, Food, Consulting, Chemistry, Energy, Consumer Goods, Transportation, Real Estate as well as strong participation of social organizations, wherein entrepreneurs are at the forefront of development.
The positive impact of entrepreneurs in society
With such a large experience base, we will start to build an arena for the future with the mission to expand the positive impact of entrepreneurship, broaden and deepen the entrepreneurial base of new entrepreneurs, as well as contribute to building large companies in the future. There is a strong desire to inspire other entrepreneurs from across the globe to succeed in the same way, increasing the positive influence of entrepreneurs internationally. Here are a few examples of what can be achieved:-
- more employment opportunities,
- new products and services that bring about positive change to people, organizations and society.
- Financial resources to help finance societal priorities and needs.
In addition, I have the strong belief that entrepreneurship is a cornerstone to create a more tolerant society as entrepreneurship is open to all, no matter what background or gender.
