Karolina Dehnhard to Speak at 60 Million Congress Global Polonia Summit

Posted on September 27th, 2019

Karolina A. Dehnhard, a Member of law firm Norris McLaughlin, P.A., and Chair of its New Jersey Matrimonial & Family Law Practice Group, will speak at the 60 Million Congress Global Polonia Summit, Wednesday, October 2, – Sunday, October 6, at Melrose Ballroom in New York City.

About the Summit

Throughout the summit, Dehnhard will discuss how to operate in the global economy, how to connect start-ups from Europe with those from the United States, and how Polish businesses help their U.S. counterparts to establish operations in the European Union. Having taken part in the European Union Economic Forum in Poland last month, she will also comment on what opportunities there are for European Union start-ups working with U.S.-based business incubators.

The 60 Million Congress Global Polonia Summit was created to showcase, empower, and integrate the Polish business communities in Poland and across the globe. Its name and idea were inspired by the millions of people of Polish descent spread around the world. The celebrations in 2018 of the 100th anniversary of Poland regaining independence gave the initiative the perfect momentum. The Congress became an excellent opportunity to bring the Polish community together to discuss Poland’s position on the world stage. With the strong emphasis on economic development, the Congress focuses on international relationship building. For more information and to register, please click here.
