ISM Conference Director and Hult Professor Elliott Adams notes, "We are excited to partner with Global Innovation Week and the dozens of other Bay Area organizations who are bringing in fresh ideas and talent from abroad. We welcome dozens of startups from over 15 countries to campus for the day, to network with their peers and learn from veterans of Silicon Valley."
Marty Manley, Executive Director of the Hult San Francisco Campus, commented, "This first gathering of global entrepreneurs is a good example of our educational philosophy. We attract students from 100 countries, immerse them in the real world of business and entrepreneurship, offer them top mentors and workshops, and watch them help grow new ventures in places far from the resources of San Francisco and Silicon Valley."
