Hozint at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit

On June 22nd – 24th Hozint attended the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES 2016) at Stanford University in Silicon Valley, California. The Summit, organized by the U.S. State Department to promote entrepreneurship across the globe, saw the participation of President Barak Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry and prominent entrepreneurs such as Mark Zuckerberg (Facebook, CEO), Sergey Brin (Google, co-founder), Sundar Pichai (Google, CEO), Reid Hoffman (LinkedIn, co-founder), Travis Kalanick (Uber, co-founder) and Brian Chesky (Airbnb, CEO) among others. 

In his opening speech, Secretary Kerry remarked how today’s societies are facing major challenges such as terrorism and extremism. Terrorists attacks like those in Paris, Brussels and Orlando exercise a deep impact on societies and businesses, hence affecting the overall economy of a community or a country. Similarly, President Obama showed his concerns over the result of the UK referendum to leave the European Union (so called Brexit). Hozint was represented by CEO Edoardo Camilli, who was interviewed by Voice of America on Hozint’s contribution to help organizations to cope with the above mentioned challenges.
