No single country or entity can do it alone. We can’t transform economic development in isolation. We all need to take part in the solution. ACE allows you to interact in a high-level environment with top global and regional leaders passionate about transforming economic development and helping their countries, cities, and communities in various areas.
With over 36,000 high-level authorities/officials, top leaders and experts engaged since 2014, ACE is more than just an event. It is a network of networks for which sites, hosts, participants, communities, and countries provide the opportunities for collaborative economic problem solving that no one site, community, or person can do alone. It is creating the catalytic partnerships that lead to deals.
When the right partners come together, great things happen for innovation, entrepreneurship, and economic development.
Ecuador looks forward to partnering with you! The Americas Competitiveness Exchange (ACE) will take place in Ecuador from November 13 to 17, 2022, in Quito and Guayaquil.
If you are a high-level authority, a leading decision maker in the public or private sector, academia, or a top entrepreneur transforming economic development, innovation, and entrepreneurship in your country/city/community, the ACE program is a unique opportunity for you, and we strongly encourage you to apply.
During the five days, a VIP group of selected participants will connect with 15+ innovation hubs and learn from more than 40 best practices and projects related to economic and business development, technological transformation, innovation, and entrepreneurship in the cities of Quito and Guayaquil. Global and regional leaders will visit and tour Ecuador’s top universities and research institutions, rural and urban development programs, emerging innovation centers, robust companies across sectors, and entrepreneurial initiatives.
