From Brain Drain to Brain Gain
London | September 24th
at Rooms on Regent’s Park | RCOG
Reload Greece is proud to present its third annual conference “Enterprising Diasporas: from Brain Drain to Brain Gain”. This is a unique opportunity for everyone to join, exchange ideas and international experiences about entrepreneurship.
Entrepreneurship is key to economic growth. A lot of emphasis is placed on how local institutions and conditions support local entrepreneurs, but far less attention is paid to the more global outlook. There is now a plethora of cosmopolitan entrepreneurs who, armed with technologies that enable distant collaboration, transcend national borders in search of knowledge, funding, and better opportunities for growth.What is driving their success? And, how do global diasporas leverage their international connections and access to resources to support new ventures in relatively distant locales? By drawing on examples of international importance we will set out to explore how various countries have successfully harnessed their diasporas, and how their models, successes and learnings can apply to Greece.
