We at the St. Lucia Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Agriculture are pleased to invite you to join us in San Juan at GEC+Puerto Rico, co-hosted by the Global Entrepreneurship Network and Puerto Rico Convention District Authority from July 15-18, 2024. For more than a decade, the Global Entrepreneurship Congress (GEC) has fostered cross-border collaboration, connected founders and investors and helped create healthier entrepreneurship ecosystems. GEC+Puerto Rico will convene entrepreneurs and their backers under the theme of Vision 2035:  An Entrepreneurial Future for Latin America and the Caribbean (V35).  V35 will lay out an ambitious roadmap for a more vibrant and thriving economy by 2035 – offering specific programs and policies to position the region for exponential growth aligned with its culture and rich history.   Delegates will enjoy keynote speakers, strategic planning sessions, hands-on practical training, and of course, ample networking among founders, investors, ecosystem builders, educators and policymakers in order to walk away with answers to three sets of questions:

• V35: The Vision, Roadmap and Frontier Technologies Driving the Industries of Our Future Where should Latin American economies focus – and not focus – their time and investment?  What are the industries and trends that are shaping the global landscape?

• Leave No One Behind: Entrepreneurial Ecosystems Thrive When All Are Included How can each ecosystem capitalize on its diverse communities and unleash exponential growth by removing barriers and ensuring there are opportunities for all?

• Getting to Work: Programs and Policies to Support Today What are the specific actions that governments, communities, entrepreneurial support organizations, investors and entrepreneurs can take starting today?
