Welcome to the ICSB Academy 2017!
The Academy is a week-long entrepreneurship education program consisting of an immersive cross-cultural and experiential boot camp followed by activities and workshops in conjunction with the 62nd ICSB World Conference (www.icsb2017.org). This year the program comprises several special events including a “Learn from Mistakes” module, (showcasing business failures by veteran entrepreneurs and how to learn from them), industry and incubator site visits, a pitch competition in collaboration with Finland’s slush.org, and a city tour and a tango night.
You will attend the ICSB world conference welcome reception and participate in the inaugural United Nations Small and Medium Enterprise Day on June 27, an annual event with historic importance that the United Nations has created in conjunction with the ICSB to raise awareness of the role of SMEs in the global economy and sustainable development. We will celebrate the UN SME Day for the first time in Buenos Aires, and highest profile Government delegations from around the world will gather here to attend this historical event and discuss how to promote entrepreneurship and support SMEs around the globe.
