Latin America Builds Bilateral Links for GEW

The opening day of GEW in Latin America has seen the creation of a new cross-border initiative aimed at promoting an intercultural dialogue around entrepreneurship. The first Virtual Forum of the LATAM group met online this afternoon via the BID (Pan-American Development Bank) Webinar platform, in what they hope will be the first step towards building a more cooperative culture in enterprise promotion throughout the region.
The LATAM group is made up of 11 Hosts from Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Honduras, Paraguay, Perú and Venezuela, and is the product of an initiative conceived at this year’s Global Entrepreneurship Congress in Dubai.
The group shared their thoughts on the challenges and obstacles facing entrepreneurs in the region, as well as identifying the keys to success for aspiring start-ups. LATAM sees the Virtual Forum as the first in a line of collaborations for the fledgling union, and hopes that the project will create a much-needed forum for dialogue between young entrepreneurs across Latin America and a platform for success built on the power of shared experience and ideas. Plans have already been made for a second meeting later during GEW. Stay tuned.
