Entrepreneurship Is the Spark of Prosperity

According to the World Bank Group:
  • Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) account for more than half of all formal jobs worldwide.
  • SMEs provide effective solutions to critical development issues, like access to clean energy and water, health services, and education.
  • The World Bank Group will show its support for innovative SMEs, start-ups and entrepreneurs at the 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Silicon Valley
