Global Entrepreneurship Week 2015 is November 16th – 22nd and I’m excited to share that Melinda Epler and I will be sharing our entrepreneurship lesson learned, successes, failures and our passion for inclusion in all areas of tech entrepreneurship in Kingston Jamaica for the U.S. Embassy and in Puerto Rico for the H3 Tech Conference.
Global Entrepreneurship Week is a celebration of the innovators and job creators who launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. During one week each November, GEW inspires people everywhere through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.
While in Jamaica, we’ll be working with the U.S. Embassy in Kingston visiting incubators/accelerators, universities and talking with numerous entrepreneurs and business leaders. Additionally I’ll be delivering the keynote talk during the Youth Business Awards Dinner.
After we leave Jamaica, we’ll fly to Puerto Rico for the H3 Conference. The H3 Conference is Latin America’s premier innovation conference where tech-hackers, the startup scene and the creative economy meet. H3 Tech Conference’s main objective is to develop an innovation-based entrepreneurial mindset by providing the tools, the knowledge and the space to exchange ideas to build a strong ecosystem. On Friday I’ll be speaking on how to turn “Your Idea to MVP: Toolbox for Early Growth”
For the next 12 days it’s wheels up and I’m excited and humbled to have the opportunity to share my lessons learned with fellow entrepreneurs in Jamaica and Puerto Rico.
