A May 2009 conference at the Hoover Institution on the “How and Why of Promoting Entrepreneurship Abroad,” results in a policy announcement in Washington.

U.S. secretaries of state George P. Shultz and Condoleezza Rice and Stanford University president John Hennessy were among the featured speakers at a conference at the Hoover Institution on the “How and Why of Promoting Entrepreneurship Abroad.” Discussion at the conference centered around promoting entrepreneurship abroad and how U.S. diplomatic missions could provide a good platform for such an initiative. Participants at the event explored ideas to help create, develop, and grow new markets and companies.
