Beginning in 2016, the Young Transatlantic Innovation Leaders Initiative has launched over 300 alumni from across Europe forging the way for international partnerships. YTILI is a Fellowship Program created by the U.S. Department of State. This initiative allows emerging business owners from Europe to learn the ropes of U.S. entrepreneurship. This mode of learning permits rising entrepreneurs to enhance their business skills while empowering them to create lasting partnerships with business leaders from Europe and the United States. Additionally, the YTILI program includes a virtual customized entrepreneurial curriculum, a chance to engage with alumni, and most importantly, a fellowship with a business in one of nine U.S. cities.
