This dynamic, multi-day series of events will focus on sharing new thought leadership and existing best practices for global LGBTI economic empowerment, entrepreneurship, and development. In this, it will highlight innovative and cutting-edge technological solutions to promote entrepreneurship, showcase a dynamic partnership that seeks to fill the evidence-base on LGBTI economic development, and share expertise on using businesses as agents of change.
