GES 2015: Onuegbu to speak at Obama instance

The Executive Vice Chairman, Signal Alliance and Founder of Sasware, Mr. Collins Onuegbu has been invited to speak at the 6th Annual Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES 2015) in Nairobi, Kenya on July 25 – 26, at the instance of United States President, Mr. Barrack Obama, reports ITRealms.

Senior Director, National Security Council in US, Courtney Beale, in a letter to Mr. Onuegbu, stated that “Your participation will demonstrate your personal commitment to the President’s long standing support for entrepreneurship and his call to action on May 11 to generate new investment in entrepreneur around the world.”

ITRealms reports that Onuegbu who is a leading investor in technology and technology-enabled businesses has accepted the invitation, and will be part of a discussion in Intra-Regional Entrepreneurship and Trade at the summit.

“There is need for more engagement and sharing of ideas to see how we can improve and support entrepreneurs in an emerging economy like ours. Nigeria entrepreneurs and angel investors need all the support they can get to grow their businesses and generate employment in order to reduce poverty,” Onuegbu told ITRealms

ITRealms recalls that President Obama launched the GES in 2009 in order to bring together entrepreneurs and investors from across Africa and around the world annually to showcase innovative projects, exchange new ideas, and help spur economic opportunity.

The 2015 GES agenda, ITRealms gathered would focus on generating new investments for entrepreneurs, with a particular focus on women and youth. Hence, since 2009, GES has emerged as a global platform connecting emerging entrepreneurs with leaders from business, international organizations, and governments looking to support them. This is the first time GES will take place in sub-Saharan Africa.
