Roundtable Discussion on Entrepreneurship on the Internet

By Betel HailuManager, Organization Members Engagement

The ICT Centre of Excellence in partnership with the Internet Society and the African Union Commission will be organizing a roundtable discussion on entrepreneurship on the Internet on 17 March 2015 from 1:30 PM to 5:30 PM in Addis Ababa, at the African Union Commission’s Conference Centre.

The Roundtable discussion will gather approximately 30 participants from the local Internet and ICT communities and concerned institutions with the objective of mainly identifying opportunities and challenges for on-line entrepreneurs working on e-commerce and e-business as well as those who are developing apps for mobile devices.

The information collected during the roundtable discussion will feed the report that will be prepared for African policy makers and other people who have a stake in entrepreneurship on the Internet. This is expected to help identify and find remedy for the barriers that might currently hamper the development of on-line entrepreneurship in Ethiopia in particular and in Africa in general.
