The Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE) will host our fourth Entrepreneurial Ecosystem Convening at Portmarnock Hotel & Golf Linkslocated just outside of Dublin, Ireland from January 29-31, 2018. The event will begin with an informal reception and dinner on the evening of January 29th around 3 pm and conclude around 5 pm on January 31st.

We plan to gather 30-35 influential leaders drawn from the corporate, foundation, and international development sectors to discuss how to more effectively create thriving local entrepreneurial ecosystems in emerging markets. The discussion will be a highly interactive and off-the-record with a focus on action. 

Please view the 2018 EECO Agenda for a general understanding of topics that will be discussed during the meeting. The broader objectives of the meeting include:

  • Reviewing key learnings from ongoing entrepreneurial development initiatives 
  • Obtaining peer feedback on entrepreneurial ecosystem programs under development
  • Exploring collaborative opportunities around specific sectors and geographies
