DCM Elizabeth Rood’s Remarks to Media at Betsy Fore’s Public Lecture (November 13)
Q-n about the event
DCM Elizabeth Rood: We are organizing events throughout the country to celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week. We support innovation and entrepreneurship. The U.S. Embassy has gathered young entrepreneurs and experienced business leaders to participate in a mentorship program. Also, we invited young expert Betsy Fore to conduct public lectures and workshops for future entrepreneurs in Georgia. We highlight the importance of women in a startup economy, and our slogan is “Women First, Prosperity for All.” When women are successful, the country is successful as well because women’s participation in economy creates stability in a country.
