Entrepreneurship is at the origins of all businesses. Innovation and entrepreneurship are linked by a common concern for the creation of new phenomena, whether new organizations or new products, services or processes.

What will fuel more innovation is working together like never before, with combined expertise, experience and insights, collaboration and networking is the new and important source of competitive advantage.
