While participating in a business fellowship, Zamir a Russian fellow worked with Downtown San Diego Partnership and forged an international connection through the mutual interests of business in startups. Zamir’s experience is a perfect example of our fellowship programs creating global partnerships. After completing his fellowship, Zamir invited Downtown San Diego Partnership’s Andy White back to Russia to engage with the largest StartUp event in Eastern Europe.
Zamir describes his experience with the following quote:
“After visiting San Diego and working with Andy White at Downtown San Diego partnership, I realized how many things we have in common and that startup community in all the countries are struggling with the same issues starting with idea generation and ending with raising capital for companies growth.
