The Global Entrepreneurship Summit, organized by the White House along with the Kingdom of Morocco, took place in Marrakech during Global Entrepreneurship Week. The event brought together entrepreneurs, policymakers and everyone in between to celebrate entrepreneurship.

Today, the organizers behind the event released a ‘Best of GES’ video with interviews of participants, headliners speeches and more. “People everywhere in the world are hungry for economic opportunity,” said Vice President Joseph Biden when he spoke to the crowd on his birthday.

Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker reminded everyone on November 19 as part of the global celebration of female entrepreneurship that "When women entrepreneurs take risks and succeed, societies change for the better".

 

“The energy in this place is amazing,” said Hamdi Ulukaya, founder of Chobani. “When people leave from here, they are going to be pumped and there will be amazing businesses coming out of here.”
