From Tegus to Beirut // Does entrepreneurship enhance social and economic mobility?

A Cross-Atlantic Conversation

Description: 
Entrepreneurship in developing economies is seen as a driver of social and economic mobility. In a cross-Atlantic conversation, we are engaging various players from the local startup ecosystems of Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras and Lebanon's capital city Beirut to explore reflections of entrepreneurship as an enabler to social mobility and how it plays out in economic development.

This event is part of Global Entrepreneurship Week Beirut and Tegucigalpa.

Outline:
1) The state of entrepreneurship in the country and the capital city.
