District of Columbia
Nov 11, 2010
While thousands of events take place around the world during Global Entrepreneurship Week, Washington DC will feature a number of events that focus on national and international issues facing entrepreneurs today. These events are open to the public.

This one-hour panel will kick off at 10:00 am and will spotlight critical policy challenges, including visas, regulation, taxes and trade.

Entrepreneurship: The Economic and Regulatory Barriers
The U.S. Chamber's Campaign for Free Enterprise, in partnership with the National Chamber Foundation and Global Entrepreneurship Week/USA will host an event on November 18 to discuss the economic and regulatory barriers that entrepreneurs face today.
During these economically challenging times, it is evident that entrepreneurs can generate jobs and help stimulate the economy. Entrepreneurs developing new technologies and creating companies which will grow rapidly and employing 100+ individuals in the next three to five years, are at the helm of our economic recovery. But these entrepreneurs face economic and regulatory impediments that hinder them from investing in our free enterprise system which will lead to a reenergized economy.

Employment Challenges Facing Young People Across the Arab World
On November 17, 2010 during Global Entrepreneurship Week, Gallup and Silatech will host an event to release the latest Silatech Index report titled Voices of Young Arabs. While much is written about the demographic “youth bulge” in the Arab world and its impact on unemployment rates across the region, few have asked young people themselves about the challenges they face in successfully entering the job market. The latest Silatech Index report highlights key trends in attitudes and perceptions among young people across the Arab world, including their desires to start a business, their access to and levels of satisfaction with resources that can help them enter the job market, and the connection between aspirations to migrate and SME-drain.
