Are you a recent entrepreneur, or looking to take your business beyond Latvia? In celebration of Global Entrepreneurship Week, the U.S. Embassy will hold our second-ever Entrepreneurship Seminar on Wednesday, November 4. We plan to bring together top local and U.S. businesspeople and thinkers on entrepreneurship and innovation for a half-day event for promising Latvian entrepreneurs drawn from local small and medium enterprises (SMEs). This year’s tech-themed program will feature a “short course” on the Lean Startup method and customer development taught by renowned U.S. entrepreneur Lawrence Wright. Our goal is instructional and inspirational: to provide you with concrete information to help you more effectively run and develop your business, as well as to encourage you to think creatively and build a network with fellow entrepreneurs facing similar challenges.
Global Entrepreneurship Week takes place every November and highlights the importance of innovation and entrepreneurship for modern societies. You can read more about Global Entrepreneurship Week here:http://www.gew.co/. If this sounds of interest, please read on!
