GIST APEC Startup Training for entrepreneurs
In recognition that science and innovation can enable sustainable, inclusive economic growth across the Asia-Pacific region, the U.S. State Department Global Innovation through Science and Technology (GIST) Initiative in collaboration with the Australian Government and Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) are delighted to announce a program to support and train teams of science and technology entrepreneurs from APEC economies; especially those entrepreneurs that support women and/or vulnerable communities.
For this regional GIST Startup Training, there will be a specific focus on teams that:
- Support women-ownership in business;
- Invest in women or vulnerable communities, such as first peoples, indigenous peoples, or those from rural communities;
- Use inclusive company growth strategies that engage women or vulnerable communities; or innovations that address the needs of women or vulnerable communities.
