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.
