U.S. Embassy Podgorica is facilitating the participation of Montenegrin information and communications technology (ICT) companies Amplitudo, The Badger, Uhura solutions, Marleq, and SUPER hub in the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) 2019 in The Hague, June 3-5. GES is one of the major global ICT business events, hosted by the United States and the Netherlands, with 2,000 industry-leading participants from more than 120 countries.
In addition to meetings with investors and other emerging companies, Montenegrin companies will also have an opportunity in a special side event, organized by the State Department, to present their innovative programs to entrepreneurs, specialized media, and potential partners.
Montenegro’s ICT sector is emerging as one of the key contributors to the country’s economic revival, alongside the traditional industries of tourism, energy and agriculture. Innovative Montenegrin ICT companies and startups are gradually entering international markets with positive prospects in terms of income generation and job creation.
One of the GES participants, Amplitudo, has recently received a grant by the Central European Initiative and Western Balkans Fund to organize two regional digital transformation events in September 2019, entitled EDITA and PRODIGY. These events would bring top regional business professionals, digital innovators, and business support associations to discuss cooperation in the realm of digital innovations.
Also, this opportunity will provide a platform for Montenegro-based startups to showcase their innovations, including both established and new ideas.
The U.S. government proudly supports Montenegrin entrepreneurs and their efforts to expand trade between the United States and Montenegro.
