DRIVING IMPACT

Since its start in 2001, nearly 2 decades ago, OPEN has played a lead role in promoting high impact entrepreneurship in key diaspora communities. During this time, OPEN's hundreds of networking meet ups, mentorship events, skills building workshops, and annual conferences have brought together countless professionals.

These events have helped built relationships amongst thousands of entrepreneurs, corporate professionals and business leaders. OPEN aims to facilitate:

ENTREPRENEURSHIP & CAREER DEVELOPMENT: Access to corporate executives, and venture capitalists to acquire domain and industry related knowledge, and have exchange of ideas on building and scaling ventures, and succeeding in corporate careers.

LEARNING & GROWTH: Availability of skills development workshops and fireside chats to learn from experts and seasoned professionals and pursue career goals.

NETWORKING & MENTORSHIP: Enable interaction amongst entrepreneurs, professionals and business leaders through high-impact networking and mentoring.

COMMUNITY & COLLABORATION: Gateway to rewarding connections and community members to help bring leaders together on broad efforts that benefit the OPEN community worldwide.

As a volunteer-driven, not-for-profit organization, OPEN members have themselves led this charge; and a new generation of leaders are moving the organization forward.
