Greetings from Halifax

Greetings from Halifax, Nova Scotia, where I have been attending the ICSB World Conference on Entrepreneurship for the last few days.

With hundreds of delegates from all over the world, it has been a great event where academics, policymakers and practitioners have engaged in full and frank discussions on a range of issues.

The highlight for me was a presenttation by Professor Zoltan Acs, who revisited the 'gazelles' work by David Birch which originally inspired me to set up the Wales Fast Growth 50.

The report is here and it should be required reading for any policymaker interested in developing the enterpreneurial potential of their nation or region.
