In a partnership led by CRDF Global and the U.S. Department of State, the GIST Initiative will bring 12 technology entrepreneurs from seven developing countries to the U.S. as part of the GIST Entrepreneurship Journey. The international excursion, which in part is organized by 1871 and the Illinois Science and Technology Coalition, is part of the larger GIST Initiative program, which builds entrepreneurial ecosystems through startup competitions, acceleration services, and interactive mentorship programs in over 50 countries in the Middle East, Central and South East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.
We will be keeping you updated on every step of the transformers' journey. In order to read about the latest updates, as well first-person observations from the transformers themselves, visit the GIST Blog.
Let the journey begin!
