Senior Advisor to the Secretary of State David Thorne will travel to Monterrey, Mexico November 21-23, 2015. In Monterrey, Ambassador Thorne will participate in the Startup Nations Summit, where he will give remarks on U.S. government policies and programs supporting entrepreneurship. Accompanying Ambassador Thorne to Mexico will be Thomas Lersten, Director of the State Department’s Global Entrepreneurship Program.
Global Entrepreneurship Network’s Startup Nations Summit gathers policy advisors and community leaders to identify effective policy levers and public sector-driven programs that are making an impact in advancing entrepreneurial growth around the world. Startup Nations members share ideas about what is working and what is not in their respective environments, connect to research and enable informal knowledge sharing. They also bring entrepreneurs to share firsthand details about barriers they face in starting or scaling their business at home.
