Innovation and Entrepreneurship in the United States (Project for China)

September 20, 2018 - September 25, 2018

Visitors from China will explore the U.S. system of capitalism in a urban environment where private enterprise is supported through a variety of public-private partnerships, academic institutions, and incubator spaces. A program in Cleveland will allow visitors a unique perspective of economic recovery in a “rust belt” city and the promotion of a 21st century economy driven by high-tech innovation.

International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program

Each year, over 300 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.

By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
