Young Entrepreneurs and the Fight Against Poverty
On 23, 24 and 25 of April took place the first “Symposium of Young Entrepreneurs and the Fight Against Poverty” organized by the Instituto Fe Y Libertad
Instituto Fe Y Libertad is a non-profit organization created in 2014 whose mission is to promote individual freedom and the Judeo-Christian principles that lead to human development.
Among the topics discussed in the Symposium were:
“What qualities distinguish the entrepreneur from the other economic actors?”
“Wealth is discovered and appropriated, or created?”
“Could be entrepreneurs the poor?”
“How a leader entrepreneur combines his beliefs with his work?”
“Is the entrepreneur required to be charitable?”
“What is justice?”
It was my first approach to a symposium and to some economics, politics and religius topics. Although at first I was intimidated with the readings, it was an activity in which I learned a lot; also it aroused my interest for various topics that, were it not for the Symposium, I had not considered.
I had the opportunity to meet may entrepreneurs with different backgrounds and an opinion to share.
It is interesting to listen and understand the way people see the world; and that regardless of the political, social or economic ideology, the desire for a better future for our country and the world unifies us.
From now on I will follow closely the activities of the Institute, and I hope in the future to re-engage with a little bit more to contribute.
