GlobalWelsh GlobalWelsh Diaspora project Project Objective The objective of the GlobalWelsh â€˜Diaspora Entrepreneurshipâ€™ project is to determine and validate â€˜best practiceâ€™ for the implementation of Walesâ€™s Diaspora Entrepreneurship programme. Key Focus Areas â€¢ Research how other countries engage with their Diasporas â€¢ Identify and engage with Walesâ€™s 50 most influential Diaspora Entrepreneurs and Business Leaders to determine their capacity and propensity to contribute and help shape the Welsh Diaspora initiative â€¢ Determine the potential benefits to Wales of establishing its own Diaspora organisation â€¢ Organise an inaugural Welsh Diaspora Conference to coincide with the 2015 Hay Festival The event will involve: o Walesâ€™s Top50 Diaspora & Top50 resident Entrepreneurs o Project Stakeholders e.g: Welsh Government and private sector sponsors o Hay Festival Executives o Others committed to the future development of a Welsh Diaspora Origins of the Project The â€˜Diaspora Entrepreneurshipâ€™ project has its origins within the â€˜Welsh Entrepreneursâ€™ community and has been two years in gestation. It is understood that long term engagement with Walesâ€™s most successful non-resident entrepreneurs and business leaders, will provide opportunities for them to contribute to improving Walesâ€™s economic performance and bring a more international / global approach to business. In addition their contribution will greatly impact Walesâ€™s next generation of entrepreneurs and business leaders. There will be other less tangible benefits including exposure to different business cultures that could help us develop a better understanding of the diversity and opportunities within the global economy.
