GCRI at German-American Conference at Harvard

The 8th German-American Conference at Harvard brought together leaders from business, politics, academia, and media.

This conference inspired leadership, fostered dialogue, and promoted innovation. Participants engaged in discussions on the most pressing transatlantic challenges of our time. With more than 700 participants and 30 speakers, it is the largest student-led conference of its kind in the United States.

In the 12,000 square feet Innovation Lounge, the challengers and champions of key industries convened with students, young professionals, and VIPs from business, politics, and academia. Both recently founded startups and industry leaders showcased the latest innovation and technology trends that drive growth and prosperity on both sides of the Atlantic. The hottest start-ups had the unique opportunity to pitch their businesses in front of top-notch U.S. investors. The Innovation Lounge was co-hosted with the German American Business Council.

GCRI Director Dr. Joann Halpern gave a talk at the conference.
