The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) is pleased to highlight the YTILI program - strengthening the transatlantic partnership between entrepreneurs in Europe and the United States.

The Young Transatlantic Innovation Leaders Initiative (YTILI) is the U.S. Department of State’s flagship program for emerging entrepreneurs from Europe. A cohort of 60 European entrepreneurs, ages 25-35, from 45 European countries will participate in a robust fellowship placement in the United States, accompanied by online and virtual professional development experiences. The application is open now through March 1, 2021. Please visit https://ytili-worldchicago.org/ for more details on the program and eligibility requirements. Follow YTILI on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and LinkedIn for program updates.

YTILI uses entrepreneurship as a tool to promote mutual understanding and lasting partnerships between emerging leaders from Europe and the United States. YTILI empowers young entrepreneurs to enact change in their local communities by strengthening their skills and expanding their networks through a fellowship in the United States. The fellowship is supplemented by an online and in-person entrepreneurship curriculum, a regional Innovation Summit, and a reciprocal exchange opportunity.

YTILI is a program of the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, supported in its implementation by WorldChicago.
