The Stanford Technology Ventures Program—the group who brought Global Innovation Tournament to Global Entrepreneurship Week—has a new venture to unveil. The Roundtables on Entrepreneurship Education series will kick off in July with the first of four conferences for entrepreneurship educators around the world.
The conferences are designed to stimulate communication and collaboration between the various players in high-technology entrepreneurship. Business, science and engineering faculty who teach entrepreneurship in universities around the world are invited to attend.
The U.S. conference—scheduled for July 28-31 on the Stanford campus in Palo Alto, Calif.—will be in conjunction with the annual Always On conference. Together, the event will highlight significant political and commercial trends affecting the global technology industries by bringing together hundreds of industry experts. This year’s agenda includes speeches and panels involving leading executives from Google, Nokia, Qualcomm and 451 Group, to name a few.
The other three conferences will be hosted by leading universities around the world. In September REE Europe will convene on the University of Oslo campus in Norway, and in October the conference will be held at the Chinese University in Hong Kong. Unversidad del Desarrolo will host the Latin American conference in Chile, scheduled for November.
The November conference will also serve to announce the first official numbers from all the successes of Global Entrepreneurship Week 2009.
