ST. LOUIS (AP) - The Clinton Global Initiative University gets under way Friday in St. Louis with former President Bill Clinton leading a discussion on the challenges young entrepreneurs and innovators face in launching a new business.
The president's daughter, Chelsea Clinton, is scheduled to speak at the session. Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, who grew up in St. Louis, is part of the panel.
More than 1,000 university students from 75 countries and all 50 states are participating in the weekend of events at Washington University. The goal is to develop practical and innovative solutions to the world's problems.
Previous Clinton Global Initiative conferences have taken place at George Washington University, Tulane University, the University of Texas, the University of Miami, and the University of California, San Diego.
