Entrepreneurship can transform the world. Entrepreneurs solve problems, create jobs and boost economies. That’s why the United States has committed to generating $1 billion in new investments in entrepreneurs, particularly women and girls, through its Spark Global Entrepreneurship Initiative.
That is also why President Obama announced the creation of the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES) in 2009. Held annually since 2010, GES has become a pre-eminent platform for entrepreneurs and leaders from businesses, international organizations, and governments looking to support them. For the first time, GES will be held in sub-Saharan Africa in 2015.
On Monday, March 30 at 9:00 am EST, Senior White House officials will answer your questions about U.S. Government support for entrepreneurship in Africa and around the world.
