Road to GES

The U.S. government, led by the White House, in coordination with the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the U.S. Department of Commerce, the Small Business Association, and other partners are collaborating to host a series of events domestic and international events on the "Road to GES" in Silicon Valley this June. These activities are aimed at fostering dialogue and relationships between investors and global entrepreneurs. Along the "Road to GES," we will continue to bring together partnership practitioners and leaders to engage in discussion on common challenges and best practices, identify new partnership opportunities, and coordinate on collaborative solutions. 

While we can't bring every entrepreneur out there to Silicon Valley for the conference, we know that these important conversations are happening all around us, and being held in cities all around the world every day. Recognizing the importance of fostering these dialogues and relationships, we want to amplify these conversations, help deepen their impact, and garner more community support.

So if you're planning your own entrepreneurship event surrounding GES 2016, we want to hear about it.  Please click below and tell us more about it! You’re event could become part of the Road to GES.
