Established in 2007, the Cisco Entrepreneur Institute has a presence in 31 countries, has aided the formation of 19 Training Centers and 17 Local Institutes in these countries, and has trained more than 3,300 entrepreneurs.

By working with local public and private sector organizations, Cisco helps communities and nations harness the power of entrepreneurship for greater economic and social prosperity.
