Theme 2016: ICT entrepreneurship for social impact
wtisd16.pngIn 2016, World Telecommunication and Information Society Day (WTISD-2016) will focus on the theme:
“ICT entrepreneurship for social impact”, in accordance with Resolution 68 and as endorsed by ITU Council 2015.
ICT entrepreneurs and start-ups and small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) have a particularly relevant role in
ensuring economic growth in a sustainable and inclusive manner. They are involved in the development of
innovative ICT-enabled solutions with a unique potential to make a long-lasting impact in global, regional and
national economies and as an important source of new jobs, especially for youth, in the current knowledge economy.
The theme for WTISD-16 is in line with ITU’s work in unlocking the potential of ICTs for young innovators and
entrepreneurs, innovative SMEs, start-ups and technology hubs as drivers of innovative and practical solutions
for catalysing progress in achieving international sustainable development goals, with a focus on SMEs from
