SAN JOSE, Calif. AP — President Barack Obama is encouraging aspiring entrepreneurs from more than 140 countries to connect their ideas with U.S. businesses.

The Global Entrepreneurship Summit has become an annual event that tries to link entrepreneurs with investors from across the world.

Officials said the more the U.S. can help emerging economies, the more they become markets for American-made goods.

The White House is particularly trying to encourage women and minorities to become entrepreneurs.

Obama will also speak with Facebook founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg at the summit for a segment aired on Facebook Live.
