The Commercial Diplomacy Initiative

Advancing National Interest And Supporting U.S. Firms Globally

The Commercial Diplomacy Initiative is dedicated to enabling a perpetual economic advantage for the United States and its allies and partners while preserving entrepreneurial principles and values.  

The foundation of our approach is the fostering of creative collaboration between the private sector, government, and academia in ways that promote decentralized and informal communication, connect diverse stakeholders, and nurture an increased understanding of each other's objectives, constraints, and resources. 

We invite you to participate in our upcoming events and initiatives and encourage you to connect with us to navigate the challenges and opportunities of our time.
