In addition to the official events on April 26 and 27 for the Presidential Summit, over thirty partner organizations have invited participants to independent events, highlighting how the President and the US Government have helped catalyze a long-term, sustainable conversation on entrepreneurship.  During recent months, the State Department has been coordinating with outside organizations on these related but independent events, which will take place on April 28 and 29. 

Related events include:

  • Roundtable discussions hosted by the Acumen Fund, Endeavor, the Brookings Institute, and the World Congress of Muslim Philanthropists;

  • Receptions hosted by the Kauffman Foundation and Businesses for Diplomatic Action / Entrepreneurs' Organization; and 
  • Video screenings of Ten9Eight at the Library of Congress and Garbage Dreams at the World Bank.  

In addition, the US Government is hosting events for delegates, including briefings on business development by the US Small Business Administration, an economic support roundtable at the US Trade and Development Agency, a breakfast for female delegates with the Secretary of State and a reception hosted by the State Department for Ambassadors to the United States from delegates’ home countries.
