Led by Global Entrepreneurship Network in partnership with the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation and MindCette.

The growth of GEN’s annual Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC) over the past 10 years has created demand for smaller, follow-on events around the world. GEC+ events, which were developed in 2016 to fill that demand, gather experts from around the world for deep-dives into specific regions or issues.

GEC+ Cape Town on March 16-17, 2017, offers an introduction to Cape Town’s vibrant entrepreneurial ecosystem. Following on the heels of GEC 2017 in Johannesburg, the event is sponsored by the Allan Gray Orbis Foundation (AGOF) and the Cape Town GEC+ Host Committee, which is made up of the city’s leading entrepreneurship organizations.

In addition to an overview of the local entrepreneurial ecosystem, GEC+ Cape Town will host a member meeting of the Global Entrepreneurship Research Network as well as a dive deep into innovative new methods for understanding entrepreneurial mindset around the world.
