The Young Transatlantic Innovation Leaders Initiative (YTILI) program empowers young European entrepreneurs and innovators with the tools, networks, and resources they need to grow their enterprises and contribute more fully to economic development and job creation, security, and good governance in the region. YTILI is also a vehicle for building a transatlantic network of innovators that can contribute to on an ongoing policy dialogue that strengthens the transatlantic relationship. Launched in 2016, the Young Transatlantic Innovation Leaders Initiative Fellowship is the flagship program of the of the US Department of State and is supported in its implementation by The German Marshall Fund of the United States (GMF).
Since its inception, six Slovenian participants have already participated in this program, demonstrating how competitive Slovenian youth are in these in-demand fields. If you want to know more, read what Miha and Sabina have to say about it.
