GOBB Partners

Supporting institutions

The GOBB conference is inspired by WorldChicago’s Professional Fellows program which took place in the Spring of 2017 in Chicago. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, WorldChicago hosted 12 emerging tech innovation, entrepreneurship, and education leaders from Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, and Slovenia in Chicago for four-week professional development fellowships in organizations including tech companies, government agencies, innovative NGOs, and university and non-university technology incubators. This unique professional development opportunity provides international fellows with exposure to the U.S. tech and entrepreneurship ecosystem with hands-on experience and a platform to learn and share best practices with their American counterparts. Learn more about the Professional Fellows Program at World Chicago's website.
