TechnoServe is proud to announce that its 42nd Anniversary Gala will be held on February 23, 2010 at the Pierre Hotel in New York City. This special event will celebrate global entrepreneurship and leadership. We are excited to honor the following inspirational individuals and organizations who have demonstrated unprecedented global leadership in promoting entrepreneurship.
The Celebration of Global Entrepreneurship and Leadership will applaud entrepreneurship as an incredible catalyst to lift people out of poverty in developing nations and recognize the leadership, passion and commitment of thoughtful men and women enabling small business owners worldwide.
TechnoServe’s strategy for empowering entrepreneurs centers on “the entrepreneurship funnel,” which follows an entrepreneur from the early development phase through operating established businesses. TechnoServe intervenes at all levels, providing practical, business and entrepreneurship training. The organization has conducted 30 national BPCs in Africa, Latin America and India since 2006. National business plan competitions (BPCs) unfold over several months, with the help of local partners from business, academia and government. They assist applicants in turning their business ideas into realities through not only training, but also mentorship and consulting. Additionally, TechnoServe creates platforms for entrepreneurs to access the capital and support services they need to build dynamic small growing businesses.
As a founder and executive committee member of the Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs (ANDE), a global network of non-governmental organizations, foundations and investment funds that collaborate to grow small businesses in the developing world, TechnoServe is a leader in a movement giving men and women access to skills and resources essential to successfully launch and expand businesses. In recent work with Goldman Sachs, the organization is also developing a specific focus on supporting and empowering women entrepreneurs. And as a strategic partner to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, TechnoServe is able to further increase its reach and improve the lives of the impoverished throughout the world.
