YLAI Pitch Contest

Friday, November 4, 2016 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Come engage with visitors from the U.S. Department of State this Friday as they compete for a chance to present in Washington, D.C. for startup funds! The Young Leaders of the Americas Initiative was designed by the White House and the U.S. Department of State to strengthen economic ties in the Western Hemisphere by hosting 250 Fellows from Latin America and the Caribbean here in the U.S. These 14 visitors to Dallas come from 13 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean and have spent the past month developing their professional skills with one-on-one mentorship from host entrepreneurs. The Fellows span a range of industries and social enterprises, but are all dedicated to revolutionizing their field with their innovative ideas.

The Fellows will be pitching their ideas to a panel of judges at the Dallas Entrepreneur Center at 10:00 am. Join us for coffee and snacks while we watch the pitch contest.
