On Friday, at the Global Entrepreneurship Summit (GES), US President Obama praised tech start-ups who are trying to improve diversity in their workforces. He also called for governments worldwide to embrace openness and transparency. He discussed the censorship of the internet in Egypt and said that free speech need to be encouraged instead of stifled, even if it has negative effects. He also said that women and young people and minorities “deserve the same chance to succeed as everybody else.”

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg also shared some advice with the young entrepreneurs like Medhat and Laboratoria’s CEOs. Obama welcomed Zuckerberg and said, “I can’t wear a t-shirt like Mark for another six months, but I will take off my jacket so I don’t look so formal.” Zuckerberg spoke about Internet.org and connectivity saying that we need to work better to empower people to spread connectivity in less successful nations.
