THE United States Embassy in Port Moresby has picked four persons to attend the 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Summit in California this month.
They are Dawna Horton, Haroun Rashid, Vavine Nadesalingam and Hubert Namani.
The summit will be held from June 22 to 24 at Silicon Valley in California.
The embassy in a statement said the four would be joining more than 700 entrepreneurs from around the world along with investors, speakers and leaders.
Among those attending are President Barack Obama and secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker.
The summit will connect global entrepreneurs with the access and exchange needed to create, innovate, and unleash their power to change the world.
Silicon Valley in Palo Alto is a perfect example of this approach where thousands of firms have achieved success.
The summit is seventh installment in a series hosted by the United States and the governments of Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Morocco, and Kenya.
In bringing the summit back to the United States, Obama highlighted his commitment to building bridges that help tackle global challenges together.
The summit will include a wide range of workshops, panels, talks, pitch competitions, mentoring, and networking sessions to give participants tailored opportunities to gain skill and relationships that will help their ventures grow.
The summit will be used to identify how countries would deepen ties between business leaders, foundations, and entrepreneurs in the United States and communities around the world.
