Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2019
The Dutch and American peoples share one of the longest histories of friendship, enshrined in shared values and culture. To advance and celebrate the work of entrepreneurs, on June 4 and 5, 2019, the Netherlands and the United States will co-host the ninth Global Entrepreneurship Summit in the Hague, the Netherlands. The 2019 GES underscores both countries’ commitment to entrepreneurship and innovation.
During the 2019 GES, entrepreneurs and investors will gather for two days of dynamic “TED-like” discussions, panels, matchmaking and mentorships. They will connect, exchange ideas and create new investment opportunities. The Summit provides a platform where stakeholders are brought together to develop concrete business ideas - before and during the course of the event - and accelerate solutions to global challenges.
The Summit will feature industries such as Health, Energy, Water, Food and Agriculture and Connectivity/Infrastructure, and will bring investment-ready entrepreneurs together with investors, innovators, policy makers, global brands and thought leaders from around the world. Entrepreneurs drive global economic growth and innovation, creating jobs at more than twice the rate of established companies and tackling some of the world’s most pressing challenges.
Together, the United States and the Netherlands will use the GES to drive global innovation and celebrate the free-market economy that supports jobs, growth, problem solving and innovation. An estimated 20,000 emerging leaders have participated in Global Entrepreneurship Summits since 2010. The relationships formed at these summits have transcended borders, industries and sectors to transformed ideas into partnerships and successful enterprises.
Join us in the Hague this summer as next-generation entrepreneurs meet with investors, companies and leaders to address and overcome global challenges. More information about #GES2019 and how to sign up will follow shortly on this website.
