At Amway, every month is start a business month, whether in the U.S. or around the world! In fact, every day, we equip new entrepreneurs with the mentorship, confidence, products and training they need to own and run a business.
In the video below, Amway Chairman Steve Van Andel said, “We’ve never lost sight of our belief in entrepreneurs. They have been the essential . . . driving force of our business for over 50 years.”
“Entrepreneurs fuel our success, as well as the economies of communities around the world,” added Amway President Doug DeVos. “Today, the spirit of entrepreneurism is alive and well.”
The findings of the 2013 Amway Global Entrepreneurship Report – which measured the dynamics of entrepreneurism among 26,000 people in 24 countries – reinforces these statements.
In 2014, Amway will continue to study the entrepreneurial landscape, looking at what helps and holds people back from bringing their entrepreneurial ideas to life.
We’ll also be adding 13 new countries to our study this year, including India, Korea, China, Brazil, South Africa and Norway. A total of 37 countries will be surveyed, and the release of our results will coincide with Global Entrepreneurship Week in November of this year. (Check out this great video of coverage from last year’s release of the report.)
