Entrepreneurship and Social Innovation on two sides of the planet:

A global teleconference between New Mexico, USA and Tajikistan


Monday Nov. 17th, 9:00pm (UTC – 7:00), UNM Anderson School of Management GSM 226


Tuesday Nov. 18th 9:00am (UTC +5:00), American Chamber of Commerce in Tajikistan


The United States state of New Mexico (34◦N, 106◦W) and the Republic of Tajikistan (38.55◦N, 68.8◦E) are nearly opposite to each other on the planet’s surface.  However, there is much to share between these two beautiful places.  Both have a rich ancestral heritage, and both have a relationship with larger economies that pose great opportunities and challenges for businesspeople and for the communities they serve.  In an era where social change is a big part of how businesses and economies develop, it is important to know how this concept is understood across large distances.  Students from the University of New Mexico and students from several higher education institutions in Tajikistan will have a one-hour discussion on different perspectives on entrepreneurship and social innovation.


U.S. side -- Michaela Brown, Startup ABQ; Manuel Montoya, PhD, Anderson School of Management

Tajik side-- Marco Rinkovich, AFA Press, United Nations Population Fund

This broadcast will be recorded.  A copy of the broadcast will be made available for viewing later in the week courtesy of the Anderson School of Management and IBSG.
