As AIESECers, we all learned to take initiative. For some alumni, this led to founding their own businesses. International Startup Meetings bring together entrepreneurs, investors and professionals together for education, networking and funding. Aspiring to build global businesses, ISUM attendees create networks that cross cultues and geographies. The first five ISUM meetings have successfully created new partnerships and business opportunities, and there are many more in our future. Next ISUM is March 24-25th, 2014 at Momentum2014Mexico.
