Through this project, Pakistani visitors will explore start-ups and business incubation in the U.S. and the involvement of both the private and public sectors. Small business in Northeast Ohio is tightly entwined with job creation and empowerment of entrepreneurs. Cleveland’s local community start-up culture will be examined through visits with Flashstarts, ECDI, the Health-Tech Corridors, and other local resources.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
