New York Entrepreneur Week
wrapped up last Saturday, featuring CEO coach and investor Mac Lipscomb
as a keynote speaker. The 20-person organization now has its sights on
Chile, where they are sending a delegation in January.
This initiative is part of Entrepreneur Week’s expansion to South

met the Chilean president in November to encourage entrepreneur-friendly
policies. Regular Entrepreneur Week events include networking sessions,
hands-on training, talks, and "excursions” like ski trips and kite
But more than that, founder Gary Whitehill wants to turn Entrepreneur
Week into a full e-learning platform that democratizes entrepreneurship
education, à la TED. He and his team are working on distilling three
years of conferences into 3-5 minute transcribed clips, planned to go
live in late 2012.
