The ACE 10 program will bring together 50 senior-level government, business, policy, and economic decision-makers from across the Americas and beyond to experience the diverse range of projects, strategic investments, public-private partnerships, and best practices that showcase the innovation and entrepreneurship ecosystem of the Northern California Megaregion. More than 300 leaders – from the 32 independent countries comprising the Organization of American States and other targeted countries – are expected to submit applications to participate in the ACE 10 program. The top 50 participants are determined by the ACE selection committee. A call for applications is open through August 10th. More information on the ACE 10 program and application process is available at the OAS ACE 10 website.  A promotional video to encourage potential applicants to apply highlights what participants will experience during the ACE 10 program when they visit the Northern California.

ACE 10 participants will be looking to make connections, build networks, and establish ongoing partnerships. ACE 10 is an unparalleled opportunity to establish or advance partnerships for promoting trade, investment, research, and economic development interactions.
