Innovation Marketplace, a hub for startup entrepreneurs at GES 2016
A series of booths and demonstration hubs to focus on resources for entrepreneurs scaling their businesses
In conjunction with its partner Stanford University, organizers of the Global Entrepreneurship Summit, scheduled to begin on June 22, will feature the Innovation Marketplace – a series of booths and demonstration hubs that will focus on resources for entrepreneurs scaling their businesses.
From partners exhibiting public-private partnerships that showcase artisan enterprises, to those spotlighting the latest in design technology, the diversity of market exhibitors highlights US government and partner programs that support global entrepreneurship and provide startup resources, the organizers have announced.
The space is designed to spark the imagination of GES participants through interactive conversations, and provide richer access to possible resources. The Innovation Marketplace shows the creativity, range and dynamism that fuels entrepreneurial growth.
A competition dubbed ‘Spark the Fire pitch’ is also going to be happening at GES-2016.
The competition is designed to help emerging entrepreneurs seek investment and scale their venture.
As many as 36 entrepreneurs from around the world will compete for a chance to win cash – up to US $30,000 – and additional in-kind prizes.
