which was held in Dubai, UAE.
This year’s GES will be hosted by the U.A.E. government, the U.S. State Department’s Global Entrepreneurship Program in coordination with the White House and several U.S. agencies, and in partnership with Entrepreneurial Ventures of Arabia (EVA)— “the U.A.E.’s flagship platform for entrepreneurship across the Arab world”.
GES was launched by United States President Barack Obama in 2009 as a global platform “to empower entrepreneurs with the skills and resources necessary to compete and thrive in the 21st century.”
“At this Summit, we look to build and strengthen partnerships with one another in order to create opportunity and provide the resources to succeed. We believe entrepreneurs can create jobs that fortify relationships between countries, build global markets, and help fulfill the dreams of all who desire the freedom to make of their lives what they will.” – President Obama
