The event was broadcasted live and a group from Chicago participated in the business building with their -on line- business pitch! Entrepreneurship knows no barriers!
The event was held by SIFE.One of SIFE Alex targets is connecting entrepreneurs with the real business world. Such an event will help in creating a network between entrepreneurship students (small scale entrepreneurs), business leaders and advisors, putting them into action by tackling the most crucial issues of the business world. The World entrepreneurship Day is providing these networks, the real opportunity to engage with their community entrepreneurs and begin their own business. Successful entrepreneurs will talk about their success stories and the challenges they faced and how they overcome these challenges."
