“The US Consulate was pleased to sponsor this event. It was great to meet with these aspiring entrepreneurs and share experiences and information,” said Diane Del Rosario, Public Affairs Officer at the US Consulate in Toronto. “By forging these cross-border connections, we strengthen our ability to build back better.”
The EPICentre had three representatives from the US Consulate General office at the first networking event, enjoyed the collaboration of the Portland State University Center for Entrepreneurship, and the participation of UWindsor students.
