In Silicon Valley, Mai Medhat, CEO of Eventtus joined a panel discussion on stage at the Global Entreprenership Summit. The panel is moderated by Barack Obama, and the panelists are Mai, Mark Zuckerberg, and two entrepreneurs from Tanzania and Peru.
Yesterday, in an iconic scene, Mai joined President Barack Obama in a panel discussion with Facebook Founder Mark Zuckerberg and other entrepreneurs. More than 1,500 people from around the world are on campus attending the Global Entrepreneurship Summit.
President Barack Obama told an international audience at the seventh Global Entrepreneurship Summit that entrepreneurship is a bridge that connects the world for a more prosperous future.
“It turns out that starting your own business is not that easy. That it can be especially difficult for women and young people and minorities,” Obama said. “You deserve the same chance to succeed as everybody else.”
Entrepreneurs that “make it” are creating something that will make “fundamental change,” Zuckerberg said. “It’s really more about creating a change than creating a company.”
Obama asked the panelists if there were any policies that could be modified to make the process of starting a business more smooth, to which they expressed cultural biases against young people.
President Obama sat down with the three global entrepreneurs from Egypt, Rwanda, and Peru and Mark Zuckerberg to talk about the spirit of entrepreneurship—and its promise of opportunity, prosperity, and security.
A historical moment, Mai representing Egyptian talent & innovation at #GES2016 and she couldn’t hide her Egyptian spirit even while sitting alongside Obama and Zuckerberg:
Thrilled tweets for Mai Medhat as a proud moment for the entire Egyptian startup ecosystem:
