Women Entrepreneurs to Discuss Transatlantic Opportunities in NYC
NEW YORK — Polish & American Women Entrepreneurs (WE) and Cultural Vistas will host the USA-Central Europe Women in Business Summit taking place on Thursday, October 17 in the penthouse of Tribeca Rooftop, located at 2 Desbrosses St. in New York City.
In addition to the two female-led nonprofits organizing the event, the Summit is being further supported by an honorary committee headed by the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in New York, which includes four other Central European diplomatic missions in the United States—the Embassy of Slovakia, the Consulate General of the Czech Republic, the Consulate General of Hungary, and the Consulate General of Germany.
Thanks to startups and high-achieving women entrepreneurs that have driven economic growth and development in the region, Central Europe is booming. These trends are actively being supported by governments and public institutions emphasizing foreign expansion and scaling of companies that, until recently, were satisfied with just local and regional growth. This shift to a more outward perspective highlights the need to build and grow a transatlantic dialogue among women in business.
“Women in business from these two regions should continue to develop new or grow already-existing trade and investment linkages and partnerships. The Summit will give these women an opportunity to discuss, share, and broaden their networks. There is no better way to grow a business and expand a professional network than through a personal exchange of ideas and practices,” said Maciej Golubiewski, Consul General of Poland in New York.
The Summit, which will also feature representatives of each country’s Trade and Investment Office, will focus on a variety of subjects, ranging from women-led startups—to already established enterprises—to professional career leadership-training across Central Europe and the U.S.
Notable attendees will include representatives from both regions discussing the potential for American and Central European women in business, strategies for accessing market opportunities, and insights into the best practices available for conducting transatlantic business. Panel discussions, interactive high-level meetings, and excellent networking opportunities will make for an unprecedented Summit.
USACE is made possible in partnership with Mastercard, Google, KGHM, PGE, LOT Polish Airlines, and The Williamsburg Hotel. Community Partners include: Global Chamber, Women’s Foreign Policy Group, Women in International Trade, International Women’s Entrepreneurial Challenge Foundation, and Kafkadesk.
