This fifth annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit will convene thousands of participants on November 19-21 in Marrakech, Morocco, and will highlight the impact of technology on modern entrepreneurship. Some 3,000 entrepreneurs, mentors, educators, policy makers, investors, and others will gather to explore the summit's theme: "Harnessing the Power of Technology for Innovation and Entrepreneurship".
The Global Entrepreneurship Summit is central to supporting entrepreneurs and their ability to unlock the economic potential of entire nations and lift people out of poverty. It will provide an opportunity to celebrate entrepreneurs from around the world and a platform for the exchange of innovative ideas. It will take place during Global Entrepreneurship Week, making it the largest of the thousands of entrepreneurship events taking place around the world that week.
