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 America, the Middle East, and Europe, which began with a delegation who 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 surfing.

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.
