Once, your event is planned, register here and tell us all about it. We can't sponsor your event but we can help in other ways, especially by getting you more volunteers. Once you register, your event will be added on this page where others can find your event and come support you. More information would be coming soon.

Sheilla Gyamfi is a Swedru Senior High School (#Swesco) alumni. In her  bio, she wrote: "I see the JCIP as a platform, to enable young people develop their skills and talents while waiting to further their education. I look forward to networking with other individuals and putting into practice what I learnt in the classroom. I want to study Business Administration, and build a career in Organizational Planning and Management".

Some people think #GES2015Kenya is not great for Africa, that our own govts should do this, America is taking our attention etc. My $2.33 below.

#GES2015Kenya is the Global Entrepreneurship Summit in Kenya that America's President Barack Obama attended.

We've 2 types of influential youth in Africa. Those in politics & the changemakers-doers-entrepreneurs. #GES2015Kenya helps the 2nd group.

Young African changemakers-doers-entrepreneurs need #GES2015Kenya, etc to network with each other, get horizontal inspiration & insight.

Young African changemakers-doers-entrepreneurs need #GES2015Kenya, etc to build bigger profiles to amplify their impact & become the norm.

#GES2015Kenya, etc helps young African changemakers-doers-entrepreneurs drive their influence elsewhere & circle back home. Real talk.

Do African goverments organize things like #GES2015Kenya? I think so. But who attends those? How are they chosen? Therein lies other problems.

We need a critical mass of young African changemakers-doers-entrepreneurs. #GES2015Kenya,etc provides vim for this. Grassroots movement, still.

#Morevim to all young African changemakers, doers and entrepreneurs.
