Panelist Biographies

Speakers and Moderators of infoDev's Global Entrepreneurship Week 2015

During Global Entrepreneurship Week in 2015, infoDev and the World Bank Group hosted a series of events to share the latest research related to growth entrepreneurs in developing countries. What is the impact of growth entrepreneurs? What conditions enable them to reach regional or global scale?

The data and insights from these panelists have contributed considerably to the Growth Entrepreneurship Flagship Study, an infoDev initiative to identify the characteristics, contributions, motivations, and constraints of these leaders of high-growth firms in developing economies.
