Yesterday, Ambassador Litzenberger attended Azerbaijan’s 2020 Innovation Week Summit, where he spoke about growing U.S.-Azerbaijan cooperation in the start-up industry. The United States is home to some of the world’s largest and most successful start-up communities, where entrepreneurs from around the world work together to turn ideas into business ventures. Ambassador Litzenberger stressed the importance of protecting intellectual property to promote innovation, as well as the dangers of partnering with untrusted tech vendors like Huawei. The United States looks forward to promoting greater cooperation between Azerbaijani and U.S. start-ups in 2021! What would you say to attract a potential investor to Azerbaijan?
