“I have known and worked with Fabiola Vilchez and Bilen Fraye for the past eight years on a full range of international projects, first as CEO of the Los Angeles Cleantech Incubator and now as CEO of the Network for Global Innovation. They have organized some of the most complex international trade missions, with substantive content, requiring working with multitude of stakeholders, VIPs, while also coordinating intricate logistics. These programs include the U.S., Europe, Mexico, South America, China, South Korea, and Japan.
Beyond being a fabulous organizer of international missions and valuable programs, Diplomatica knows how to connect business, institutions and political leaders in a way that is actually conducive to getting something useful done. Rather than just focus on getting people into a room, they focus on getting the right people in the room with the right program. This is only possible because of their broad experience in international affairs and understanding of global business and geopolitical issues.
While Diplomatica may be a relatively new venture, the Diplomatica team are deeply experienced and driven to make a real difference.
I strongly recommend their services.”
