The ACE was originally created by the U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. Department of State and the Organization of American States (OAS) as RIAC Technical Secretariat.
The objective of the ACE is to showcase successful examples of entrepreneurship, innovation, strategic investments and public-private partnerships from a specific region/country that contribute to the economic development at the local, national and regional levels. The ACE is the ideal opportunity for decision makers to explore local and regional economic development models, share experiences and knowledge, build networks between the local and visiting stakeholders, and establish long-term collaborative partnerships to strengthen innovation and economic development models and entrepreneurship econsystems of the Americas and beyond.
