A busy week for entrepreneurs during CHOGM 2018

19 Apr 2018

This week the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) is taking place in London. It is a unique forum bringing together the Heads of State from all 53 Commonwealth Member countries.

With a gathering of this nature there are a large number of additional events taking place and at this years CHOGM there are 4 forums focusing on 4 key themes, Youth, Business, Women and People. You can find out all about the Forums here.

There was also an excellent event hosted by The Duke of York on Monday evening called Pitch@Palace, an initiative he founded in 2014 to support and highlight amazing entrepreneurial talent. For CHOGM he put on a special Commonwealth edition. You can find out all about that here.

I am delighted to say the IoD 99 didn’t miss out on the action… We held a special social with the support of the Commonwealth Enterprise and Investment Council on Wednesday evening that pulled together Founders from all four corner of the Commonwealth for a evening of networking and micro pitches.
