Just Now! The Call for Applications to the Americas Competitiveness Exchange in Puerto Rico just Opened!
The Inter-American Competitiveness Network (RIAC) invites you to apply to the 11th Americas Competitiveness Exchange on Innovation and Entrepreneurship (ACE) that will take place from Saturday, May 18, 2019, to Saturday, May 25, 2019.

The weeklong program will visit 20+ innovation and research hubs throughout Puerto Rico– including San Juan, Mayaguez, Ponce, Caguas, and Ceiba – and will focus on how Puerto Rico leverage its business innovation ecosystem to strengthen its high-technology industry clusters.

Selected participants will have the opportunity to learn from the business incubators and accelerators such as Engine 4; connect with experts from the Puerto Rico Science, Technology and Research Trust; visit the Aeronautic and Aerospace Institute; get to know the Innovation, technology and entrepreneurship projects from Puerto Rico University and Turabo University; and dialogue with the Secretary for Economic Development about rebuilding efforts that the Island is undergoing, among others.

Apply today and be one of the 50 selected leaders and decision makers from the public, private and academic sector that will join the Program to forge international and regional partnerships, expand trade and investment, and strengthen the Americas innovation and competitiveness efforts by building on ideas and models that work to create jobs.

The 11th ACE is convened by the Organization of American States (OAS) as the RIAC Technical Secretariat; the Government of the United States, through the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. Department of State, and the Government of Argentina, through the Ministry of Production, as Chair Pro Tempore of RIAC (September 2017-2019).
