Entrepreneurship in a Global Marketplace
A vibrant start-up culture is taking root in emerging markets and is redefining the very nature of entrepreneurship. To benefit from opportunities and overcome challenges, start-ups must think globally from their very inception. At this year's Emerging Markets Forum, a distinguished roster of speakers and panelists will discuss the challenges of global entrepreneurship from the perspectives of both policy and practice.
Speakers include Benjamin Wu, Deputy Secretary of the Maryland Department of Economic and Business Development; Dr. Anil, Michael Dingman Chair in Strategy at the Robert H. Smith School of Business; and Dr. Iqbal Quadir, Professor of Practice and Entrepreneurship at MIT.
The Centers for International Business Education and Research (CIBERs) were created by Congress under the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988 to increase and promote the nation's capacity for international understanding and competitiveness. Administered by the U.S. Department of Education under Title VI, Part B of the Higher Education Act of 1965, the CIBER network links the manpower and technological needs of the United States business community with the international education, language training, and research capacities of universities across the country. The 17 CIBERs serve as regional and national resources to business people, students, and teachers at all levels. This grant program adheres to the Education Department General Administrative Regulations (EDGAR) Title 34, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Parts 74-86 and 97-99.[More]
