Official greeting

Olga Azarova. SAGE EUROPE Continental coordinator

DEAR SAGE FAMILY!
DEAR CONTINENTAL AND NATIONAL COORDINATORS and BOARD OF DIRECTORS!

As we promised, three months before the SAGE World Cup, we send you information about the SAGE WORLD CUP 2017 in UKRAINE!

On behalf of SAGE Europe Head office, I congratulate you that the SAGE 2017 World Championship will held in an european country, in the geographical center of Europe - in Ukraine!
We are proud of the fact that Ukraine has become the host country and Odessa - host city!

Ukraine is the biggest european country. Area 603,500 km2 (233,000 sq mi).
The territory of modern Ukraine has been inhabited since 32,000 BC. During the Ages, the area was a key centre of Slavic culture, with the powerful state of Kievan Rus' forming the basis of Ukrainian identity. So thats why UKRAINE is considered the mother (homeland) of all the East Slavic nations and states that came from Kievan Rus (Ukraine, Russia, Belarus and others). And therefore, Ukraine and its culture play a major role in the formation of the Slavic ethnos.

WE HAVE THE HONOR TO HOST WORLD CUP SAGE 2017 IN UKRAINE - IN THE CENTER OF EUROPE!

We have the honor to host the World Cup for the second time!
In 2007, we hosted the 3rd International Championship, in 2017 - exactly 10 years later - we host the 13th World Championship!
And we are glad that Ukraine for the second time becomes the center of intellectual business competitions for the whole world!

Business ideas of youth, which students demonstrate at the World Championships, have a big global significance:
- we find global innovations,
- we are growing a new generation of global leaders!

This year we will hold the BIGBOSS Global Business Forum, where the leading entrepreneurs of SAGE countries will perform speaches with the theme of "GLOBAL INNOVATION".
As in 2007, we make this innovational Global Business Forum in addition to the SAGE World Championship, as our goal is to introduce business delegations of countries, hold presentations and a forum, conduct networking between them and additional closed events for entrepreneurs-members of the jury. Global Business Forums are a long tradition of our MINIBOSS and BIGBOSS Business Schools, which are designed to unite the business elite of the world around the theme of developing the world and educating the new generation.
Major Topic of the Global Business Forum 2017 - INNOVATIONS.

This year, the Global Business Forum will provide the right to tell about global innovations for the best global entrepreneurs! This right will be granted only to the leading businessmen of each SAGE delegations that represent innovative types of businesses and can come up with the theme "INNOVATION IN THE WORLD AND INNOVATION IN MY BUSINESS".

Each candidate for the Forum should send an application for participation in the form (we will provide information on the forum and applications later in the following letters). The best topics and the best speakers will be selected from no more than 10 countries that registered first.

All this will give an opportunity to increase the business attractiveness of the World Championships, attracting business elites from countries and introducing entrepreneurs. Also for members of delegations (entrepreneurs) there will be opportunities for business networking and acquaintance.
So, take more business cards with you!

In 2017, the World Championships are supported by the Mayor of Odessa - Gennady Trukhanov, by the head of the European Association for Business Development - Andrey Azarov and leading ukrainian entrepreneurs representing the best ukrainian and global brands!
