On June 10, 2014 the UN Foundation and the United Nations Department of Public Information (DPI) co-hosted the Global Accelerator at UN Headquarters in NY. The Global Accelerator was a first-of-its-kind forum for entrepreneurs and UN officials to connect and explore innovative solutions to the global challenges of job creation and youth employment, water and sanitation and gender equality. In partnership with the UN, the Global Accelerator brought approximately 100 nominated entrepreneurs from around the world to take part in this day-long program focused on supporting the UN on these issues. Innovation workshops with the entrepreneurs were facilitated by 15 UN entities.
