Nations come together to discuss entrepreneurship
Established in 1961, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) brings together the governments of countries committed to democracy and the market economy from around the world to: support sustainable economic growth, boost employment, raise living standards, maintain financial stability, assist other countries' economic development, and contribute to growth in world trade.
In 2008 the Kauffman Foundation hosted the OECD's Working Party on Small and Medium-sized Enterprises and Entrepreneurship first official meeting in the United States. Kauffman hosted the three-day event, including a workshop on High-Growth Small and Medium-sized Enterprises, Innovation, and Intellectual Assets
