Over
the past six years, the Global Entrepreneurial Congress (GEC) has evolved into
a premier annual gathering of startup champions from 153 nations dedicated to
building and strengthening entrepreneurial ecosystems that fuel advances in
innovation and economic growth. During the GEC, entrepreneurs, investors,
researchers, thought leaders and policymakers work together to help new firms
start and scale. It is the part of global campaign GEW, www.gew.co

The goal
of GEC2 is to provide a framework for thinking and acting. GEC2 has emerged to
