Secretary Pompeo delivered the March 18 keynote address at the State Department’s Road to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) Heartland event. The conference was held at the Sheraton Overland Park Hotel in Overland Park, Kansas.

Road to GES Heartland brought together hundreds of entrepreneurs, investors, and public and private sector leaders from across the Heartland who are building innovative solutions in agriculture, health, and connectivity. The event took place March 18-19, and sought to encourage deals that advance economic growth and prosperity in the United States and the world.

Road to GES Heartland participants networked with each other, took part in a pitch showcase, and joined dozens of cutting edge discussions led by outstanding experts such as Ross Devol of the Walton Foundation, Kerri Thurston of C2FO, and Lesa Mitchell of Techstars Kansas City, among many other entrepreneurial thought leaders.

At Road to GES Heartland, Secretary Pompeo also previewed his participation in the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in The Hague, the Netherlands this June. The United States is co-hosting GES 2019 with the Kingdom of the Netherlands. Investment-ready entrepreneurs throughout the United States and around the world are encouraged to apply online for GES 2019 at www.ges2019.org/application by March 22.

The United States and the Netherlands share an excellent, long-standing bilateral relationship and successful economic partnership, based on the unifying principle of our shared values, strong business ties, and business-friendly approaches.
