News: Global Entrepreneurship

On the 06 June 2017 I attended at the Global Entreneurship meeting: discussing ‘Can you be a global entrepreneur? At Málaga Innovation Festival #MALAGAIFEST17 
Entrepreneurs from different sectors were debating about best practices, mistakes, challenges and opportunities of global entrepreneurship.

The key idea from both round tables that took place has been that entrepreneurs have to think global from the start point because nowadays markets are global.
