UPSTREAM CEO LEADS DISCUSSION AT 2015 EY WORLD ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR AWARDS
London, UK – June 3rd 2015 – Marco Veremis, Co-Founder and CEO of the leading m-commerce provider Upstream – will participate in the “Power of Three – how entrepreneurs, corporations and governments can work together to achieve growth-orientated public policy” panel session at this year’s EY World Entrepreneur Of The Year Awards, held on the 3-7th June in Monaco. This year marks the 15th Anniversary of #WEOY, EY’s flagship business event, gathering entrepreneurs and business leaders who demonstrate excellence and extraordinary success in such areas as innovation, financial performance and personal commitment to their businesses and communities.
The “Power of Three” interactive discussion takes place at 7:45am on Friday 5th June, and will explore the impact of public policy on developing new jobs, new wealth and healthier economies. Panelists will be asked to identify the key public policy issues on their minds today, and debate the effects of rules, regulations and relationships upon the entrepreneurial spirit. Marco will share his views on the best ways to ensure entrepreneurial voices are heard, and allowed to flourish.
Marco Veremis says: “Now more than ever, business and politics are inextricably linked; public policy has the ability to support or strangle entrepreneurship, and we must give careful thought to the rules and regulations which impact business growth. Upstream has been a success story against a backdrop of turbulent political and economic events, and so I know from personal experience that it’s increasingly important for the voice of international business to be able to assert itself within the political sphere, and promote the creation of progressive economic environments.”
