GEC 2012 – Challenges To Entrepreneurs

Asking the question “What are the challenges faced by entrepreneurs and how best may we support them?” the Global Brainstorm hit Liverpool and the Global Entrepreneurship Congress.  This was a chance for us to explore the opportunity of developing the Global Brainstorm as an official event for Global Entrepreneurship Week.  We spoke to a number of delegates from around the world and listened to what they believed were the biggest challenges faced by entrepreneur.

Posted below you’ll find a selection of interviews that were conducted during the Global Entrepreneurship Congress 2012 in Liverpool.  From the answers given by experts working at the forefront of entrepreneurship:



      • Connection: Having access to and a growing relationship with clients, suppliers, industry members, peers, mentors and like-minded people.
      • Credibility:  Self belief and market belief in the form of testimonials, orders and repeat sales.

This was our first, experimental brainstorm within the GEC Community.
