YTILI Fellowship Program 2024

The Young Transatlantic Innovation Leaders Initiative (YTILI) is the U.S. Department of State’s flagship program for emerging entrepreneurs from Europe.

YTILI Fellows should be passionate about their business or social ventures and driving innovative and positive change in their home communities. Apply now if you would like to gain professional experience, develop transatlantic relationships, and scale your business or social venture at home.

Empowering European Entrepreneurs

Since its launch in 2016, approximately 300 alumni from across Europe have bolstered their business skills and transatlantic partnerships through the YTILI Fellowship Program.

The program uses entrepreneurship as a tool for economic empowerment to promote mutual understanding, enhance business and leadership skills, and build lasting partnerships between business leaders from Europe and the United States.

YTILI will empower a new cohort of young European business and social entrepreneurs to grow their ventures, foster global partnerships, and positively impact the economic development of their communities.

Developing sustainable partnerships between U.S. and European entrepreneurs and innovators

The YTILI Fellows Program is a two-way exchange program designed to strengthen the transatlantic relationship, develop sustainable partnerships between U.S. and European entrepreneurs and innovators, promote regional integration and cooperation in Europe, and encourage European businesses, governments, and civil society to develop their innovation ecosystems.

The program includes:

  • a customized virtual YTILI entrepreneurial curriculum
  • a fellowship with a business or organization in one of nine U.S. cities
  • opening and closing conferences; and alumni engagement opportunities

The 2024 YTILI Fellowship Program will begin with the virtual curriculum in the Winter of 2024 with the U.S. fellowship scheduled for the Spring of 2024.
