Innovator Roundtable: An Intergenerational Dialog with Internet Entrepreneurs

28 September 2011 - A Workshop on Nairobi,Kenya


The triangle of youth, entrepreneurship, and development has emerged as an important topic in Internet governance debate. The aspects of youth and development have been particularly salient on the IGF agenda, but the entrepreneurial aspect has yet to receive its due attention. This workshop will operate under the broad question: What aspects of Internet governance help or hinder an entrepreneur's (particularly young entrepreneur's) chance to succeed? The purpose of this workshop is to begin an intergenerational, multistakeholder dialog between those already involved in Internet-related entrepreneurship and those involved in public policy, to discuss the role of internet governance in creating environment conducive to innovation and entrepreneurship.
