Washington: On November 15, 2018, the U.S. and the Netherlands officially launched the upcoming 2019 Global Entrepreneurship Summit, which is scheduled to be held in The Hague, Netherlands on June 4-5, 2019.
The Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) is the preeminent annual gathering that convenes entrepreneurs, investors, and their supporters globally. An estimated 20,000 emerging leaders have participated in Global Entrepreneurship Summits since 2010. At previous GES summits, governments and the private sector have committed to provide over $1 billion in new capital to entrepreneurs worldwide.
As previously announced by the US President Donald J. Trump and Prime Minister of Netherlands Mark Rutte in July, the ninth annual GES will underscore the commitment by both countries to entrepreneurship and innovation.
The launch kick-starts the “Road to GES” events, taking place in both the Netherlands and the United States.
Investment-ready entrepreneurs throughout the United States and around the world were asked to apply online for GES 2019 at http://www.ges2019.org/application by March 22.
The 2019 Global Entrepreneurship Summit has invited the world’s most inspiring entrepreneurs innovating in Agri/Food, Connectivity, Energy, Health, and Water.
