Bhutan Business Incubation
Four Bhutanese entrepreneurs foster their vision for innovation in the United States
On September 4, four Bhutanese innovators landed in Atlanta, ready to kick off a two week journey which would take them from world-leading entrepreneurial mentorship in the city of Atlanta to networking in Washington DC and interfacing with the Department of State. This extraordinary journey was part of the GIST Business Incubation program, which connects innovators around the world to the ecosystems, expertise, and leadership of the United States, fostering dialogue and communication while building a stronger, more collaborative, and connected global startup ecosystem.
