Today, the Global Partnership Initiative, launched by Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at our Global Philanthropy Forum conference in April, hosts the first ever US Government sponsored TED event – “TED@State.” Speakers will include philanthropist Jacqueline Novogratz, CEO of the Acumen Fund and economist Paul Collier, author of The Bottom Billion, among others. Videos from the event will be posted on the TED website. Exciting to see our government keeping its word on seeking innovative ideas from new sectors!
