Salim Amin, chairman of A24 Media, Africa’s first online delivery site for African content, has been invited and will attend US President Barak Obama’s Presidential Summit on Entrepreunership to be held in Washington DC on April 26 and 27.
“For me to be amongst the few invited guests from around the world to such a significant event is a huge honour and privilege,” said A24 Media chairman Salim Amin.
The event was born of President Obama’s commitment to to build ties between business leaders, foundations and entrepreuners in the United States and Muslim communities around the world. Amin, who is at the forefront of the development of the African media environment, is one of only a handful of African figures invited to the event.
He will have the opportunity to meet with some of the most influential players in the Muslim world as well as in the US, and use the opportunity to strengthen and develop ties which will only enhance the work being done by A24 to improve information and understanding in Africa.
The U.S. Embassy in Nairobi is helping coordinate logistics for Amin’s attendance at the Summit and is pleased that he will be able to attend and promote Kenya and opportunities for economic growth.
Embassy Public Affairs Counselor John Haynes commented, Mr. Amin consistently introduces new ideas and concepts that help the Kenyan economy thrive.
His innovation and personal commitment to excellence make him an outstanding role model for the next generation.
He and the other representatives selected for the Summit are excellent examples of how entrepreneurship creates positive change in a society.”
A24 Media has quickly developed a global reputation as the number one go-to source for high quality local content on African issues for international and local broadcasters. This reputation continues to grow as the company moves into the realm of mobile content and in-flight programming, all the time producing positive and enlightening content that will reach visitors to the continent from around the world.
“President Obama and his administration are working very hard to rebuild relations with the Muslim world, and if we can use the power we have in the media in Africa to help bridge the communications gap, it will remove so much of the misinformation and subsequent stereotypes that have come out of Africa,” concluded Amin
