A panel discussion on how advances in technology are changing entrepreneurship around the globe.

In the past few years accessibility to technology and cloud computing has blown away many of the traditional obstacles to innovation, fundamentally changing the playing field for creative entrepreneurs and community leaders around the world. This unprecedented openness is inspiring new business models and social programs that were unfathomable just a few years ago.

In developing countries, where barriers to innovation and business development can be severe, the cloud and mobile technology are paving new roads to development and prosperity.

As part of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW) 2011, the International Council for Small Business (ICSB) and the Global Business School Network (GBSN), in association with the George Washington University School of Business, will host a panel of international entrepreneurs who will address how these advances in technology and telecommunications are changing entrepreneurship around the globe. In particular, panelists will focus on the development of mobile applications in developing countries as profit-driven, high-growth business ventures.
