Upcoming Webinar: Borders, prosperity and entrepreneurial responses

Posted on Updated on

In embracing the conference theme of ‘Borders: prosperity and entrepreneurial responses’, the Gender and Enterprise Network (Institute for Small Business and Entrepreneurship Special Interest Group) will host an international webinar during ISBE 2017.  This webinar aims to conquer some of the political borders that separate the international entrepreneurship community by bringing us together to share and discuss the potential of entrepreneurship in conquering borders through virtual and physical presence.

A panel of gender and entrepreneurship experts, listed below, will share with us their research on how entrepreneurs conquer the borders in their minds, as well as the social, political and economic borders that define our present and future.

We encourage those interested to consider hosting a ‘webinar party’ where you gather in a classroom or auditorium at your institution to watch together, so that the content can transcend the physical borders of the ISBE 2017 conference, and inspire discussion and debate amongst your communities of practice.
