The Millennium Group in collaboration with Global Entrepreneurship Network GEN Global, The Indus Entrepreneurs TIE Islamabad, National Incubation Center NIC, JS Bank Limited, Islamabad Chambers of Commerce and Industry ICCI and KAUFFMAN Foundation celebrated the Millennial Global Entrepreneurship Week 2021 this year under the theme ‘Ecosystem-Education-Inclusion – Building one global entrepreneurship ecosystem’.
The Global Entrepreneurship Network GEN operates a platform of projects and programs in 180+ countries aimed at making it easier for anyone, anywhere to start and scale a business. By fostering deeper cross-border collaboration and initiatives between entrepreneurs, investors, researchers, policymakers and entrepreneurial support organizations, GEN works to fuel healthier start and scale ecosystems that create more jobs, educate individuals, accelerate innovation and strengthen economic growth. GEN’s comprehensive global footprint of national operations and global verticals in policy, research and programs ensures members have uncommon access to the most relevant knowledge, networks, communities and programs relative to size of economy, maturity of ecosystem, language, culture, geography and more.
Global Entrepreneurship Week was celebrated in different colleges and universities of The Millennium Education Group namely Roots Millennium Flagship Campus I-9/3, Roots Millennium Hill View Campus Mirpur, Future World School Lahore, Future World School Bahria Town Rawalpindi, Roots Millennium School Khyber Campus Peshawar, Roots Millennium College Karachi, The Millennium Universal College Islamabad and The Millennium Universal College Bahria Town Rawalpindi. Different entrepreneurs and innovators were invited to encourage the youth to launch startups that bring ideas to life, drive economic growth and expand human welfare. MGEW inspired millennials and youth through local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as self-starters and innovators.
The events at MGEW included CEO Talks with renown CEOs and Presidents from the industry namely Irfan Wahab- CEO Telenor, Mr Shakeel Munir President Islamabad Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Mohsin Ali-CEO Inbox Technologies
Murtaza Zaidi- President TIE, Puruesh Chaudhary Founder and President Agahi , Nauman Ifthikhar CEO MGC Developments , Noman Azhar Chief Digital Officer JS bank entrepreneurial talks , Business Expos , Fashion Glam, Food Fests , Women entrepreneurs Talks. The focus was to share entrepreneurs’ stories, their experiences, challenges, and successes so as to motivate our millennials.
Through Global Entrepreneurship Week celebrations at The Millennium Education Group we hope to have a positive—and potentially life-changing—impact on aspiring and nascent entrepreneurs, moving them along the spectrum from simply having an idea to actually launching a startup. In addition, these activities help recognize and celebrate the contributions made to our community by successful Pakistani citizens. Furthermore, our goal is to inspire the youth of Pakistan to THINK BIG, whereby highlighting the fact that success isn’t simply the man or woman in a suit, sitting behind the desk; it is the person who has not only excelled in their field but also become a source of shared inspiration for others.
The main take away from this year’s Millennium Global Entrepreneurship Week is promoting entrepreneurs and the entrepreneurial spirit and encouraging start up culture.
