The annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) showcases inspiring entrepreneurs and investors from around the world creating new opportunities for investment, partnership, and collaboration; connects American entrepreneurs and investors with international counterparts; and highlights entrepreneurship as means to address some of the most intractable global challenges. 

June 22-24, 2016, the seventh annual Summit will be held in Silicon Valley, highlighting America's entrepreneurial spirit and allowing American investors and entrepreneurs to see the talent, solutions, and opportunities that exist globally. 

The summit will include a wide range of workshops, panels, ignite talks, pitch competitions, mentoring, and networking sessions to give participants tailored opportunities to gain skill and relationships that will help their ventures grow. The Alliance for Artisan Enterprise is thrilled to represent the artisan sector at GES 2016 on June 24's panel on The Creative Economy.
