Top Women Entrepreneurs from USA and Central Europe Arrive in New York City to Discuss Transatlantic Business Opportunities

 New York, NY — Polish & American Women Entrepreneurs (WE) will be hosting the 2019 USA-Central Europe Women in Business Summit that will take place on Thursday, October 17 in the penthouse of Tribeca Rooftop, located at 2 Desbrosses St. in New York City.

The organization of the Summit is supported by an Honorary Committee headed by the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in New York, and four Central European diplomatic missions in the United States; the Embassy of Slovakia, the Consulate General of the Czech Republic, the Consulate General of Hungary, and the Consulate General of Germany.

Women-led startups and enterprises have significantly contributed to the economic growth and development in the booming Central European region. These trends are actively being supported by governments and public institutions that emphasize foreign expansion and scaling of companies heretofore satisfied with domestic market growth. This shift to a more outward perspective highlights the need to build and grow a transatlantic dialogue among women in business.

“Women in business from these two regions should continue to develop new or grow already-existing trade and investment linkages and partnerships. The Summit will give these women an opportunity to discuss, share, and broaden their networks. There is no better way to grow a business and expand a professional network than through a personal exchange of ideas and practices,” said Maciej Golubiewski, Consul General of Poland in New York.

The Summit, which will also feature representatives of each country’s Trade and Investment Office, will focus on a variety of subjects, ranging from women-led startups—to already established enterprises—to professional career leadership-training across Central Europe and the U.S.

Notable attendees will include representatives from both regions discussing the potential for American and Central European women in business, strategies for accessing market opportunities, and insights into the best practices available for conducting transatlantic business. Panel discussions, interactive high-level meetings, and excellent networking opportunities will make for an unprecedented Summit.

USACE is made possible in partnership with Mastercard, Polish Development Fund PFR, LOT Polish Airlines, Polish Slavic Federal Credit Union and more partners to be announced soon. Community Partners include: Global Chamber, Women’s Foreign Policy Group, Women in International Trade, International Women’s Entrepreneurial Challenge Foundation, and Kafkadesk.

The event will be strictly limited to 350 attendees, with tickets starting as low as $79 for young professionals, and $129 for the standard early bird rate. All tickets include full access to the day-long program, including breakfast and lunch, panel discussions, breakout sessions, and networking.
