iciHaiti - Technology : D-6, Haiti Tech Summit
The U.S. Embassy is a proud sponsor of the Haiti Tech Summit and is pleased to announce that Jon Piechowski, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Public Diplomacy in the Department of State's Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, will speak at the Technology Summit to be held at the Royal Decameron Hotel on the Côte des Arcadins in Haiti, from June 20th to 22nd.

As sponsors, the U.S. Embassy is supporting the participation of 15 Young Leaders of the Americas (YLAI) Caribbean entrepreneurs and 15 local entrepreneurs in the Summit, and they will join creators and innovators from throughout the Caribbean. Increased economic prosperity in the United States and the Caribbean depends on innovation and entrepreneurship and we hope this Tech Summit will foster ideas and build relationships.

The United States values the Caribbean as a strategic priority and long-standing partners. As the Caribbean's largest trading partner, millions of citizens visit and study in the Caribbean and in the U.S. annually. We recognize the importance of the Caribbean to the success of this hemisphere and believe that a region united in our shared values and shared interests will result in a more prosperous neighborhood.

Participants will meet more than one hundred speakers from Google, Airbnb, LinkedIn, Uber, and other innovative businesses. Haiti Tech Summit, a 13-year initiative of Global Startup Ecosystem that brings hundreds of entrepreneurs, investors, digital marketers and creatives to Haiti to accelerate tech, innovation, and economic development within the country, has just opened applications for the event's second annual Startup Lab - a 1:1 mentorship opportunity with global experts.
