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.
Here are some pictures of the event:
