The Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2017 will be held from November 28-30 in India’s Hyderabad city. The United States President Donald Trump and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi had announced earlier in Washington that the two countries will co-host the 2017 Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES).
The theme of the Summit will be Women First, Prosperity for All, highlighting the critical role women play in fostering global growth and prosperity. The GES is the preeminent annual gathering of emerging entrepreneurs, investors, and business leaders from around the world.
Through networking, mentoring, and workshops, the GES empowers entrepreneurs to pitch their ideas, build partnerships, secure funding, and create innovative goods and services that will transform societies. The focus will be on women entrepreneurs and the tremendous potential women bring to entrepreneurship.
The U.S.-India relationship is growing every year with more trade, more travel, and greater people-to-people ties. The Global Entrepreneurship Summit is the latest example of how we are working together to advance the promise of an increasingly digital world and the remarkable entrepreneurial skills of our people to promote prosperity.
