The Immediate Outcome

CEOs of the Business Council for International Understanding, Endeavor, the Kauffman Foundation, Small Enterprise Assistance Funds (SEAF), and the Indus Entrepreneur (TiE) signed a letter to Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, offering to brief ambassador-designates on how promoting entrepreneurship could be part of their embassy outreach. Organizations, such as the Center for Venture Education, are exploring a “venture corps” that would put experienced U.S. entrepreneurs in residence in burgeoning foreign entrepreneurial ecosystems. Several international investment funds are closer to launching as a result of the conference.
