A global meeting of business leaders and policymakers seeks to boost entrepreneurship.
Entrepreneurs, researchers and policymakers from around the world are set to gather in France next month to examine entrepreneurship and its role in society.
The World Entrepreneurship Forum, a three-day event that takes place from Nov. 13-15 in Evian, France, is expected to bring together 80 of the world's leading entrepreneurship experts for a series of discussions on the economic and social impact entrepreneurs have on society.
Those discussions will then be collected into a policy paper aimed at supporting efforts to lobby local governments for programs that foster responsible entrepreneurship. An "Entrepreneur for the World" award will also be presented.
The event is being organized by EMLYON, a business school based in Europe, and KPMG. Other contributors include Babson College, a Boston-based business school.
