ENOVATIVETV TO BROADCAST LIVE THE 17th ANNUAL AFRICA BUSINESS CONFERENCE AT HARVARD

NEW YORK, February 24, 2015.   EnovativeTV Inc. (ETV) the leading distributor of live African television over the Internet, will be streaming six presentations, plus exclusive interviews, at the 17th Annual Africa Business Conference at the Harvard Business School on Saturday, February 28, 2015.

Themed "A More Inclusive Africa: The Pursuit of Progress for All”, the conference will focus on opportunities for more inclusive economic growth,  in terms of socioeconomic segments, industries, gender, and sectors.

Conference Co-Chairs Leo Markel and Nneka Ezeigwe stated “We think that growth that cuts across all of these will generate multiplier effects in the economy and will promote political stability. We envision that this type of growth will be led by the private sector.  However, a public sector that promotes a business-friendly environment, creates a safety net, and exhibits good governance will be instrumental in achieving inclusive growth.”

The two day event, from February 27 to March 1, 2015, is organized by the Africa Business Club at the Harvard Business School and brings together more than 1,200 attendees from across the US with some of Africa’s top contemporary business leaders, scholars and decision makers.

The Conference features a variety of impressive keynote speakers, and EnovativeTV will be streaming live on the Africa Business Conference website (www.africabusinessconference.com) as well as ETV NETWORK (EnovativeTV’s own channel) and EnovativeTV’s Facebook page (www.facebook.com/enovativeTV).

  • Fred Swaniker – Serial Entrepreneur.  Mr. Swaniker is ranked among the "top 10 young power men in Africa" by Forbes Magazine, and is training Africa's future decision-makers, politicians, entrepreneurs, scientists and Nobel Prize winners.
