OECD Local Development Forum: Better strategies for stronger communities

Workshop H. Expanding entrepreneurship opportunities for all

Jun 17, 2022 | 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM

UCC Centre for Executive Education


Not everyone has an equal opportunity to transform their ideas into a business. There could be an additional 35 million people starting and managing new business across OECD countries if everyone was as active in business creation as core age men (30-49 years old). These “missing entrepreneurs” are costing economies potential innovation, growth and jobs in addition to needed diversity. This workshop will shine the spotlight on government efforts to leverage online policy delivery to engage under-represented groups.
