Oct. 23, 2012 - PRLog -- October 21, 2012 - The Soho Loft  founder and Chairman David Drake will present at the 5th  World Entrepreneurship Forum (http://www.world-entrepreneurship-forum.com) in Lyon, France on October 25, 2012.

The three day forum  beginning on October 24 is recognized as the world’s most authoritative entrepreneurship think tank and has drawn more than 200 participants from 59 countries for an intensive schedule of sessions.  

Mr Drake will present in a session on case studies outlining key learnings from Entrepreneurial Ecosystems around the world.  His co-presenters in the session “Round-the-world Tour of Entrepreneurial Ecosystems” include the Secretary-general of Hangzhou City (the largest city in Zhejiang Province in eastern China), Mr Feng, and a 2011 Presidential candidate from Cameroon, Kah Walla.

Professor Tugrul Atamer, Co-President of the World Entrepreneurship Forum and Vice President of EMLYON Business School, has noted the forum's ability “to build a very good international reputation, to create a community from more than 70 countries and to develop a unique concept  in a short period.”

“The World Entrepreneurship Forum is a  THINK TANK that DOES, a  COMMUNITY of Entrepreneurs, Social Entrepreneurs, Policy Makers and Experts in Entrepreneurship who share the same belief: Entrepreneurs are creators of Economic Wealth and Social Justice, ” he said.

Founded by EMLYON, KMPG, OnlyLyon, Nanyang Technological University, Action Community for Entrepreneurship and Zhejiang University, the World Entrepreneurship Forum encourages all forms of entrepreneurship that integrate economic and social objectives. It is a platform for sharing ideas, networking and making a commitment. It encourages members to get involved by implementing entrepreneurial initiatives in their countries of origin.

On its website, the forum announces - “There are many routes toward 2050, and the destination will look very different depending on which one we choose.  The practical implications of any choice are huge - for governments, policy-makers, entrepreneurs and industry.  We need to create many more jobs which are socially, economically and environmentally sustainable. We need to reinvent our world's vision with humanity as the overriding priority. We need a new development model which reconciles wealth creation with social justice.  We passionately believe that entrepreneurship, in all its forms, is one of the most sustainable ways to find enduring answers to these challenges.”

A live stream from the three day event will be broadcast on http://www.facebook.com/WorldEntrepreneurshipForum (https://www.facebook.com/WorldEntrepreneurshipForum)
