Emerging Markets: Voices from the Front Lines in Venture Opportunities

October 17, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm EDT

Why Latam and Africa: With significant population growth, a growing middle class that developed countries can only think of and technological revolution, how will these regions be impacted? We will explore the entrepreneurial ecosystems and assess the key to successful market entry as entrepreneurs and investors.
 
Through the lens of these entrepreneurs and investors, we will discuss why these regions and why now, opportunities, breaking down biases, creating new narratives, what it is like to be an investor and an entrepreneur operating in these regions, what’s transferable across these regions, investing and empowering human capital, and their roles in impacting lives of billions.
