ABSTRACT
Wealth takes many forms. It is most evident in monetary forms -- but there is also wealth that brings social, community-building value that comes out of research and hard work done with a caring heart... Entrepreneurs without Borders (EWOB) is a Non-Government Organization dedicated to expanding entrepreneurial ventures (both business as well as social ventures) to developing areas of the world. We define developing areas to include not only developing countries, but also developing inner city and rural areas in Illinois and the United States. This workshop will engage participants in the formation of Entrepreneurs without Borders as a unique organization that will connect students with entrepreneurial opportunities throughout the world. Since EWOB is a newly formed organization, we will solicit input on how this can be transformed into one of the world's most influential student organizations. Participants should come to this session with an open mind and a willingness to share ideas on developing this dynamic organization.
