Bringing great entrepreneurs to a global audience

Starting a business is challenging - it takes hard work, drive and ambition – and we know you can’t do it all on your own. Along the way you need advice and support.

So who better to advise you than the world’s greatest entrepreneurs? That’s why we’ve partnered with Google for Entrepreneurs to showcase a series of Google Hangouts enabling the leading entrepreneurs of our age to share their inspirational stories and the challenges they’ve overcome to succeed.
