Dr. Karen Donfried cordially invites you to a special luncheon discussion with Assistant Secretary of State for Economic and Business Affairs, Charles Rivkin.
The successful conclusion of Global Entrepreneurship Week 2016 once again showed that innovation and entrepreneurship is a new path for diplomacy and global engagement. In particular, the United States and Europe share a common vision for economic prosperity and security that strengthens the transatlantic relationship, but start-ups, social entrepreneurs, and young innovators can play a stronger role. The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF) is pleased to be collaborating with the U.S. Department of State on a unique opportunity to bolster this connection - the 2017 Young Transatlantic Innovation Leaders Initiative (YTILI) Fellowship. As a leader in the transatlantic community, we would be pleased for you to join this discussion about the fellowship and the opportunity for innovation and entrepreneurship to strengthen the transatlantic relationship.
Lunch will be available at 12:00 p.m. and the program will begin at 12:30 p.m.
