Hundreds of budding entrepreneurs from around the world are in Silicon Valley to attend a 3-day Global Entrepreneurship Summit (Jan 22-14, 2016)  President Obama will address the conference on Friday, June 24th at Stanford University, which is where the conference is being held. The focus of this year’s conference is emerging youth and women entrepreneurs. About 40 percent of the world’s population is under the age of 30 and there is a youth bulge that needs to be addressed as one of the conference speakers pointed out. And the US government is focussed on helping women entrepreneurs around the world. The next GES Summit will be held in India in 2017.
