The Director of Digital Business at Etisalat Nigeria, Adia Sowho is headed to the Silicon Valley, California, as one of the speakers at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) 2016, reports ITRealms.

Sowho, who is among eminent personalities that would be speaking at the GES 2016 billed to hold from June 23 through 24 in the United States of America, would be dwelling on ‘Entrepreneurship in Sub-Saharan Africa: Infrastructure and the Enabling Environment’ during a session that will be moderated by the CEO, African Technology Foundation, Stephen Ozoigbo.

ITRealms also gathered that a group of erudite discussants including Alexandra (Lexi) Novitske, Principal Investment Officer, Singularity Investments, Breanna Zwart, Executive, Access Strategy Team, Google, Ime Archibong, Director, Global Product Partnerships, Facebook and Kevin Connolly, Affordable Access Initiative, Business Development, Microsoft will join Adia Sowho to analyze the technology entrepreneurship ecosystems in Sub-Saharan Africa and highlight the infrastructure needs, gaps, and opportunities.

Expectations are high that this intellectual group of discussants would present current market solutions that have created an enabling environment for Africa’s digital entrepreneurs to discuss the next wave of market opportunities across leading industries.
Global Entrepreneurship Summit 2016 will be the 7th session in a series previously hosted by the United States and the governments of Turkey, the United Arab Emirates, Malaysia, Morocco, and Kenya. 

This year’s summit aims to showcase inspiring entrepreneurs and investors, including Etisalat Nigeria, from around the world who are creating new opportunities for investment, partnership, and collaboration, and connecting American entrepreneurs and investors with international counterparts to form lasting relationships. It will also highlight entrepreneurship as means to address some of the most intractable global challenges.

The summit will include a wide range of workshops, panels, ignite talks, pitch competitions, mentoring and networking sessions aimed at giving participants tailored opportunities to gain skills and relationships that will help their ventures grow.  Within the Summit, there will also be demonstration areas, experiential learning exhibitions and opportunities to connect with industry experts.
