Notice of Fraudulent and Inaccurate Information Regarding Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) 2017

As the Department and its interagency partners set priorities and advance planning initiatives for the 2017 Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) in India, it has come to our attention that fraudulent information has been shared on Facebook. The State Department has become aware of a site falsely advertising the Summit as held in February 2017 in Bangalore. This information is false and should be disregarded. Further, the fictitious site offers a registration and payment function. Please refrain from registering and/or paying via the site. We have taken steps to have the fraudulent site removed. Please note that the date and host city for GES 2017 remains to be determined by the Government of India. Please promptly disregard any contrary information and inform your colleagues, partners, and other interlocutors across sectors.
