Africa Internet (and Mobile) Entrepreneurs' Conference 2011

PC Tech Magazine in collaboration with PearlRichards Foundation- Ghana is organizing a one day conference on the new Media and entrepreneurship in Africa. The conference titled, Africa Internet (and Mobile) Entrepreneurs' Conference 2011 (AFRIEC 2011), seeks to showcase the innovative use of new media – internet and mobiles – by entrepreneurs to address the socio-economic and development challenges in Africa. This year’s theme is "Re Building Africa through Internet Enterprises and mobile innovations." The conference has three interrelated objectives, namely:

  •  To offer participants an opportunity to share, discuss and learn from individual career experiences and profiles of African Internet and Mobile entrepreneurs.
  • To educate participants on how to use Internet and mobile resources and applications to support and promote their creative ventures.
  • To educate policy makers on how they can harness the potential of the Internet and Mobile innovations for youth empowerment and job creation.
The conference will take place on Friday, March 04, 2011 from 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM (GMT+0300) at Africana Hotel, Kampala, Uganda. This conference will bring together a blend of academics, practitioners and policy makers in the area of ICT for sustainable development and innovative mobile solutions for Africa. AFRIEC 2011 will encourage open minds, critical thinking, self-examination, creativity, and sharing ideas. We invite you to join us and look forward to welcoming you to the Africa Internet (and Mobile) Entrepreneurs' Conference 2011. We believe your invaluable experience and insight, together with the academia, practitioners and policy makers of Africa will add to what is an invaluable discourse for Africa. We have no doubt it will be a challenging and thought-provoking, as well as an entertaining, experience.
