SaloneJamboree CEO arrives in Malaysia for Global Entrepreneur Summit

Founder and CEO of Sierra Leone’s foremost arts and entertainment outfit, SaloneJamboree, has arrived in the Malaysian capital Kuala Lumpur to attend the Global Entrepreneur Summit.

Murtala Mohamed Kamara (in photo) joins over 500 coders, domain experts and youth leaders from across the world to huddle together to work and come up with solutions for some of the world`s pressing problems in the Global Startup Youth session ahead of the 2-day Global Entrepreneur Summit scheduled for next week.

The Global Startup Youth (7th to 10th October) is a high impact ideas accelerator aimed at turning ideas into high growth ventures solving real world problems. It is an action packed, high intensity, challenging yet fun filled, and ‘get stuff done’ boot camp. It harnesses the power of youth, their cultural diversity, their domain expertise and their deep conversations about today’s world problems to accelerate them into ventures, ready to be taken to market and scaled. It will set the stage for the Global Entrepreneur Summit which runs from the 11th to 12th.

Global experts in innovation, designers, startup leaders and leading grassroots entrepreneurship players will join as global mentors to help youth build solutions to real world problems. The best ventures will showcase their prototype to world leaders.

Designed by StartupMalaysia with deep insights from her partners, Global Startup Youth aims to catalyze the next generation of high-growth ventures. Kamara’s presence was facilitated by the United States Department of State through the US embassy in Sierra Leone. The award winning journalist told this press shortly after his arrival in Kuala Lumpur that he felt highly honored to be nominated by the US embassy in Freetown, and he was particularly grateful to the US Government for supporting emerging leaders in his country, Africa in general and beyond. “The US embassy in Sierra Leone has been very supportive to youth leaders, not just me. I am grateful that they are giving opportunities to young people in my country and providing leadership for all of us,” he said, promising to live up to the expectations of all.

Zeenat Rahman, US Secretary of State John Kerry’s Special Adviser on Global Youth Issues, who is also Director of the Office of Global Youth Issues, and various others, will speak at the Global Startup Youth session. President Barack Obama had been scheduled to deliver the keynote statement at what will be the 4th Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES 2013) but the White House announced that he would not make it due to the Government shutdown. The two-day summit, which was launched in 2009 by the president to spur job creation through entrepreneurship by connecting young innovators with resources and ideas, will be held at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
