"Change will not come if we wait for some other person, or if we wait for some other time. We are the ones we’ve been waiting for. We are the change that we seek." – President Barack Obama
This week in Nairobi, Kenya is a busy week, reason being that on the 25th of July 2015, The Global Entrepreneurship Summit will be held there and the icing on this cake is The President of the United States of America will actually be in Nairobi for this very event. I must say that, to Kenyan’s this visit is almost personal given that, the Son of Obama, will be bringing alongside him, influential business men and entrepreneurs willing to invest in Kenya and boost its developmental activities geared to improving the way of life in Kenya and generally Africans.
So first things first, what is all this fuss about GES? well…
President Obama elevated entrepreneurship to the forefront of the United States’ engagement agenda during a historic speech in Cairo in 2009. Since 2010, when the U.S. hosted the first Summit in Washington, D.C., GES has expanded to a global event, subsequently hosted by the governments of Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, and Morocco. The 2015 Global Entrepreneurship Summit will be held in Nairobi, Kenya, on July 25-26. It will be the sixth annual gathering of entrepreneurs at all stages of business development, business leaders, mentors, and high-level government officials. The established tradition demonstrates the U.S. Government’s continued commitment to fostering entrepreneurship around the world.
This week, I will focus more on GES 2015 in Nairobi and try as much as possible to engage everyone interested and find out exactly how you could either plug into the summit or understand the fallout effect of this global event because as you see it, so much has been put in place to make sure that this event is successful and that at the end of it all, we as a Nation shall benefit from local and international investments that will boost productivity and increase youth employment which is currently a major issue in Africa!
