Global Entrepreneurship and ICT

 

Global Entrepreneurship & ICT aims to stimulate youth leadership abilities, business management capacity and innovation through budding entrepreneurs around the world. These initiatives create connections amongst like-minded young entrepreneurs that facilitate the exchange of ideas, transfer of knowledge, access to new markets, establishment of key business partnerships, and greater opportunities for increasing income generation.  They also emphasize technical training in information and communications technologies, which increases the reach of our network of Global Leaders and improves their ability to access vital information.  Greater proficiency in new technologies opens the door to myriad opportunities in business, education, and professional development while nurturing the social fibers that are essential to creating self-sustainable global communities.
