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 & CREDIBILITY
THE KEY TO ENTREPRENEURIAL SUCCESS
- 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.
