The U.S. Government wants to engage, and partner, with the international community in a meaningful way. Join the conversation! Participate in a unique event and help shape the future.
Global Pulse 2010 is a 3-day, online collaboration event, that will bring together individual socially-engaged participants and organizations from around the world. The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) is sponsoring the Global Pulse 2010, in partnership with the Departments of State, Education, Commerce, and Health and Human Services.
One of the sessions is on Advancing Entrepreneurship, Trade & Economic Opportunity. How do we find new ways to advance entrepreneurship, job creation, and economic opportunity? What can we do as global citizens to promote entrepreneurship, and create jobs within your country, and stimulate trade between countries?
As the name implies, the event will take the pulse of thousands of participants on key issues facing communities around the world. Global Pulse 2010 will connect participants who are champions for the same social issues to build new, or strengthen existing relationships, and inform U.S. foreign assistance and diplomatic strategies on major themes and ideas that emerge across the span of the event.
Global Pulse 2010 will provide an opportunity to voice opinions, share ideas, and create innovative solutions to social issues facing the global community within the fields of science and technology, entrepreneurship, and human development. This is a unique opportunity to influence a global conversation that will build partnerships across borders, strengthen understanding among cultures, and unite the human race in an effort to create innovative solutions to the most pressing social issues of our time.
