The Governments of Kenya and the United States are pleased to announce the availability of media accreditation applications for the 2015 GES to be held July 24-26, 2015 in Nairobi, Kenya.

Launched by President Obama in 2009, GES brings together entrepreneurs and investors from across Africa and around the world annually to showcase innovative projects, exchange new ideas, and help spur economic opportunity.

The 2015 GES agenda will focus on generating new investments for entrepreneurs, with a particular focus on women and youth.

The selection of Nairobi as host city for the 2015 GES underscores how Africa — notably Kenya — has become a center for innovation and entrepreneurship. Kenya is a world leader in mobile money systems, like m-pesa, and a driver of innovation through technology research and incubation labs like “iHub.”

Since 2009, GES has emerged as a global platform connecting emerging entrepreneurs with leaders from business, international organizations, and governments looking to support them. This is the first time GES will take place in sub-Saharan Africa.


  • Members of the media wishing to cover the 2015 GES in Nairobi – including limited access to remarks by President Obama and President Kenyatta — and/or enter the press filing center, must apply for a GES media credential no later than 10:00 a.m. EDT / 5:00 p.m. EAT on June 29, 2015.
  • Only those with both a government-issued photo ID and a GES -issued media credential will be granted access to the GES site. Application for a credential does not guarantee issuance.
