Business leaders gathering in Austin for Global Entrepreneurship Week

Global Entrepreneurship Week bringing business leaders to Austin

AUSTIN (KXAN) — Business leaders and the city of Austin will take part in Global Entrepreneurship Week.

Casey Smith, with the city’s Economic Development Department, joined us in the KXAN studio along with Matthew Pollard, the executive director of the Small Business Festival, which is happening in May.

“There are thousands of events that happening over 160 countries, it’s really about educating entrepreneurs about how to make more money, how to grow,” said Pollard. “And really also to inspire other entrepreneurs that have that bug that want to go and start their own business and let them know that it is actually possible.”
