NexLinks: support systems for entrepreneurial development

Bogota, Colombia, November 17th, 2015 – The Young Americas Business Trust (YABT) and the Bogota Chamber of Commerce (CCB) extend the invitation to participate in the Second Edition of the International Meeting on High Impact Entrepreneurship. This event is taking place in Bogota, Colombia, on October 17-18, 2015, during the framework of the Global Entrepreneurship Week.

This second edition aims to enable new spaces for the sharing of good practices and success cases among different actors, motivated by changing actions that help consolidate and expand the entrepreneurial activities with growing potential.

During these 2 days, a group of experts, entrepreneurs and development actors will lead debates presenting their vision about new entrepreneurial tendencies in the hemisphere and all over the world. Besides, they will share experiences about innovative solutions that can  address the most serious challenges inside our societies. The event is taking place at the Bogota Chamber of Commerce Headquarters, in Salitre.

NexLinks is a regional program focused on the creation of mechanisms and tools that support young entrepreneurs during the starting and growing stages of their businesses. The program holds a very important component, which is the NexLinks Support Centers for Business Development Certification (CADE’s); this accreditation certifies with international standards as Excellence Centers. In the framework of this program, the International Meeting on High Impact Entrepreneurship looks forward to connecting the Network Member Centers with other entrepreneurial and innovative actors.

One of the most important YABT’s objectives is to bond different sectors of the region in order to consolidate entrepreneurship as the driver of sustainable growth. This arises as the result of the VII Summit of the Americas Mandate, meeting in which leaders from the continent debated on the necessity to move on together towards prosperity and equity in the Americas. The alliance between YABT and the Bogota Chamber of Commerce confirms their commitment in supporting the entrepreneurship, providing new opportunities for Colombian youth and the rest of the region.

This meeting holds among its key activities: the Lecture called “Consolidating Ecosystems for Dynamic Entrepreneurships” focused on elements that act upon the consolidation and scalability of entrepreneurships; panels on “Innovative Entrepreneurships and Economic Development”, “Start-ups, Technology and Globalization”, “Sustainability and Inclusion”; a roundtable on “Support Strategies for the Entrepreneurs Integration”; and others.
