ELA International Europe 2018

Széchenyi István University | Győr, Hungary | August 4-14, 2018

The ELA International Europe program will broaden the scope, vision, and mindset of our young American entrepreneurs to see the world as their market. The Hungarian people, who in 28 short years have rebuilt their nation to a modern European Union member, have opened their arms to this program in the hope of fostering the notion of a global economy. These ten days in Hungary will be filled with learning, fellowship, and events geared to build lifelong relationships.
