EY launches Global Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation
London, 6 September 2012 – EY is delighted to announce the launch of its Global Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation, an online platform providing guidance to entrepreneurs and innovators on their growth journey as well as enabling fast growing companies to connect to each other sharing their different perspectives.
The new online platform showcases relevant entrepreneurial programs, conferences and forums from around the world and provides access to an extensive global network. The center also aims to help entrepreneurial companies with their future growth plans and how best to access funding.
Maria Pinelli, Global Strategic Growth Markets Leader at EY, says: “As the world leader in advising, guiding and recognizing entrepreneurs and high-growth companies, we aim to bring together entrepreneurs, investors, major corporations and governments from around the world to accelerate companies to market leadership and facilitate the connections that help businesses to grow.
“Growth is hard to come by as businesses battle increased economic volatility, global power shifts, disruptive technology and new ways of working. Against this backdrop, only the most innovative and entrepreneurial businesses will continue to grow. By sharing our over 30 years of experience working with the world’s most dynamic and ambitious companies, from start up, through emerging enterprises, to rapid growth and market leadership, we hope the center will be a valuable help to established and future entrepreneurs.”
