A new generation of emerging entrepreneurs is coming to this country from the Middle East, Africa and Asia. They have been competitively selected to visit entrepreneurship and innovation hubs all over the U.S., including Silicon Valley, to share high-tech inventions that will help address challenges in medicine, the environment, cosmetics, mobile phone technology and more. Known as “GIST Transformers,” these men and women are winners of rigorous competitions under the Global Innovations through Science & Technology (GIST) initiative, a program designed to accelerate technology commercialization and entrepreneurship through global networking, entrepreneurship skill-building, mentorship and strategic funding. Come learn about this remarkable initiative and the future of innovation.
