Working in global science, technology, and innovation entrepreneurship for several years I have seen these issues become a rally point for capacity building. Through global capacity building activities, like my leadership of the Dept. of State’s GIST initiative, we are able to bring attention to issues facing entrepreneurs and provide a space to discuss survival techniques. My goal is to share what I have learned, best practices to promote entrepreneurs, and the value of global connectedness.
