### NURCE in Georgia: Unveiling Entrepreneurial Discoveries

We are thrilled to announce that NURCE members participated in the 'Entrepreneurship as Driver of Economic and Social Change: Insights from Eastern Europe, South Caucasus, and Central Asia' International Academic Workshop, held in Tbilisi, Georgia from September 13 to 16, 2023. This event was organized and generously funded by Goethe University Frankfurt and the DAAD (German Academic Exchange Service). Our participation was a resounding success.

The workshop explored diverse entrepreneurship motives, strategies, and practices, with a focus on informality, social networks, influential industries, government policies, and their impact on emerging market economies. NURCE made a notable contribution by presenting seven insightful research papers:

- Nurlyaiym Zhaksbayeva and Shumaila Yousafzai: “Forging a Path to Circular Prosperity: Entrepreneurship, Sustainability, and Policy Reform in Kazakhstan.”
- Zhansaule Kimel and Shumaila Yousafzai: “Entrepreneurial Resilience in the Face of Technology and Consumer Evolution: Insights from Kazakhstan.”

This event provided a platform for our team to share their research findings, network with international scholars, and gain valuable insights into the entrepreneurial landscape of Eastern Europe, South Caucasus, and Central Asia.
