Celebrating Global Entrepreneurship Week and Looking Ahead to #GES2019

This week, the State Department is celebrating Global Entrepreneurship Week -- a time to highlight successful entrepreneurs who serve their communities and to inspire the next generation to engage in entrepreneurial activity while connecting them to potential collaborators, mentors, and even investors. Our embassies, consulates, and partners around the world have organized events to promote entrepreneurship and to inspire individuals from all backgrounds to follow in the footsteps of generations of successful American entrepreneurs.

As a part of Global Entrepreneurship Week, the State Department is also proud to announce the launch of the ninth Global Entrepreneurship Summit, co-hosted by the Netherlands. #GES2019, to be held in the Netherlands, will once again convene emerging entrepreneurs, investors, and supporters from around the world to share innovative ideas and advance economic growth. An estimated 20,000 emerging leaders have participated in these Summits since 2010.

For the updates on #GES2019, including details and application information, follow our official accounts on Twitter (), Facebook (), and Instagram () for updates.
