Taking a Tech Startup to the Next Level

November 14, 2015 - November 18, 2015

According to the Center on Education and the Workforce, 8 million new jobs will be available in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics, and Medicine (STEMM) related fields by 2018. Cleveland will be a major player in providing STEM-related jobs, as the City is home to numerous tech startups, accelerators and incubators, STEM high schools, and universities with robust STEM-related academic tracks.

CCWA welcomes five visitors from Pakistan to explore how Cleveland promotes and encourages tech startups. Participants will visit Flashstarts and Lean Dog, local accelerators focused on unique uses of software and technology; Surgical Theater LLC, a tech startup that created the innovative Surgical Rehearsal Platform for neurosurgical pre-operative planning; and We Can Code IT, a Cleveland-based organization that teaches coding to women, minorities, and others underrepresented in the field. This program is designed for technology leaders and entrepreneurs who are devoted to learning about the role of tech companies in various fields and the importance of promoting and encouraging innovation within startups.

International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program

Each year, over 250 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.
