Global to Local Innovation Summit Wrap-up Photos

Posted by: Doug Bruhnke - Global Chamber on Friday, December 13, 2019

This week we held a fast-paced and interactive discussion on growing the global business innovation ecosystem... from technology, to talent, exporting, financing, logistics and more!

It was a collaborative event between Global Chamber® and ENP Institute (Irvine, CA). It featured keynote speakers, panels and groups of attendees connecting through breakouts and report backs.

You can see from the pictures below that we had some serious fun with a roomful of remarkable leaders.

Special thank you to Senator Kyrsten Sinema for her long-time support of Exim Bank, Arizona exporters and for our event! Here video is HERE or will be posted there shortly.

Attendees please watch for the event outcomes in separate communications in the coming weeks.

Thank you, thank you, thank you... to all our sponsors! We greatly appreciate your support!! See all 18 of them below and HERE.
