VentureWell is pleased to announce its partnership with GIST (Global Innovation through Science and Technology), a U.S. Department of State Initiative that fosters the development of entrepreneurial ecosystems for science and technology innovators worldwide through skills development, networking, and connections to financing.
GIST empowers young people to use their science and technology based ideas to commercialize new products and create companies that address economic and development challenges. GIST takes innovators from around the world, augments their skills, builds networks, and connects them with mentors and investors – from New York to Silicon Valley – that can help them realize their ambitions. Since 2011, GIST has mentored over 3,500 startups, generated over $21 million in financing, and engaged over 1 million innovators and entrepreneurs.
