November 16th, 17th: The 2do Cumbre ASEP will bring together a large group of entrepreneurs for an entrepreneurship fair. The speaker lists includes Gonzalo Villaran of PRODUCE and Javier Salinas of EmprendeUP.
November is the Mes de Emprendimiento in Peru and the Perú Emprende Events Calendar is the place to go for information on more than 50 events nationwide.
