Four Days of Inspirational Talks
Having last year’s successful event as a guide, the YCA team is set to welcome you for an exciting program in Bangkok for the Second Entrepreneurship Week [EW2019]. This year’s theme “Entrepreneurship & Innovation for a Sustainable Belt and Road Region” aims to expand our discussion on how entrepreneurship, technology and innovation can be harnessed to build sustainable and inclusive communities along the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
We’ve designed EW2019 around three distinct but integrated elements. First, we have sessions with government representatives, academics and experts to build an understanding of the BRI as a development pathway and its impact in Asia, along with expert presentations on how social entrepreneurship fits into the BRI as a catalyst for inclusive growth in the region. Second, we have immersive visits that provide insights into Thailand’s enterprise ecosystem as well as a Social Enterprise Thailand Exhibition at the conference itself. Third, we have technical sessions with guest scholars on cutting-edge research on key areas relevant to social innovation and entrepreneurship.
EW2019 is itself designed as a social business. There is no conference fee. When registering, delegates will be able to choose which specific conference services to purchase from our roster of entrepreneurs. From accommodation and conference kits to refreshments and consumables, delegates will be able to directly experience Thailand’s unique enterprise culture
