In today’s global economy, digital innovation and increasing interconnectivity have made doing business from anywhere in the world simpler and more viable than ever before.
This entrepreneurial internationalism is embodied by Global Entrepreneurship Week. Taking place from 14-20 November, the week-long international event brings together 10 million participants and potential investors in 35,000 events across 160 countries to introduce entrepreneurship to the next generation of leaders and influencers.
As part of our commitment to connecting with global business opportunities, we’ve outlined five top tips for the next generation of entrepreneurs to succeed in the global marketplace.
- Adapt and react
- Nurture your team
- Don’t overlook the infrastructure
- Value first-hand experience
- Think globally
With a wealth of information and resources out there, entrepreneurs are set to benefit from this year’s Global Entrepreneurship Week to guide them towards the best support. For some additional inspiration, the next generation of entrepreneurs can also learn from the countless companies across the country already hard at work. The Great British Entrepreneur Awards acknowledge and celebrate these inspiring stories and help others on the way to success, so keep your eyes peeled – the winners will be announced at an illustrious ceremony next week. In the meantime, we hope the above tips will help you get off to a flying start.
