This US State Department-sponsored International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) is for twenty eight business leaders and their U.S. State Department Liaisons, who will be visiting Detroit to examine Entrepreneurship and Small Business Development.
The delegations program from Detroit, MI will provide participants with a deeper understanding of the economic, political and social factors that influence and encourage the development of small businesses, entrepreneurship and innovation. Along with explaining in detail the impact of U.S. small businesses on the local, regional, national and global economies.
A lot of people spend half their lives to get the opportunity to meet the people that we met in just 10 days [in Detroit]. This concentration of knowledge and resources brought me one step closer to being global.
The opportunity to welcome and work with international delegations visiting Detroit provides a very rich experience. To be engaged in this work is significant and very rewarding. The world is becoming smaller every day and Global Ties Detroit contributes greatly in building strong bridges with people and nations across the globe.
