HP LIFE e-learners and supporters can earn a chance to win festival tickets, thanks to new HP/Global Poverty Project partnership
Since 2007, the HP Learning Initiative for Entrepreneurs (HP LIFE) has touched more than 2 million people, and created about 57,000 jobs. And less than a year ago, the initiative—which helps prepare entrepreneurs for small business success—went fully online. This means virtually anyone, anywhere, anytime can access cloud-based, free business and IT skills training, and a global community of like-minded people.
The Global Poverty Project announced that the 2013 Global Citizen Festival – a free ticketed concert on the Great Lawn of New York's iconic Central Park – will take place on September 28, 2013 with Stevie Wonder, Kings of Leon, Alicia Keys, and John Mayer.
