sns_cork-2This November, Ireland will host hundreds of policymakers and global startup community leaders at the Startup Nations Summit, as it comes to Europe for the first time in its history. Cork Innovates are thrilled to be the local delivery partners for this year’s Startup Nations Summit.

The Startup Nations Summit (SNS) is an annual gathering of an invitation-only network of policy influencers from around the world committed to help better enable high impact entrepreneurship through the identification of policy levers and smart public-sector-driven programmes. It will take place over November 18th – 20th. It is also the pinnacle event of Global Entrepreneurship Week (GEW). Each November, thousands of events and competitions across 160 countries inspire millions to engage in entrepreneurial activity; connecting them to potential collaborators, mentors and even investors.

As part of Global Entrepreneurship Week, an extensive schedule of activities will take place alongside the Summit, including the Global Investor Challenge and Startup Island.
