Obinwanne appeared at the 4th edition of the African Diaspora Youth Forum which took place at the UN headquarters in Vienna, Austria in June 2016, where he discussed entrepreneurial leadership for decent job creation. He spoke about the potential for Africa to create its own Silicon Valleys, to explore and export to the world

Asked what he intends to achieve and talk about at the upcoming Under 30 Summit in Israel, Obinwanne mentioned “It is the same message I take everywhere I have an opportunity to speak. It is to remind the world that Africa has great investment potentials, be it in technology, trade, education, name it. If we have the right investors, the trade potentials of the continent would explode. We can create our own Silicon Valleys and billion dollar industries here.”

Obinwanne would also be meeting with a number of Israeli investors who are interested in Nigeria. As he reckoned “I had a wonderful chat with Mr. Guy Feldman, who is Israeli Ambassador to Nigeria, a fantastic man, and we spoke at length about investment and entrepreneurship. He made it clear that there are entrepreneurs in his country who would be convinced of the benefits of investing in Nigeria.”

On Monday, 3rd April 2017, Obinwanne would join fellow Under-30 listers together with Forbes Editor, Randall Lane, to ring the opening bell of the Tel Aviv stock exchange. Israel being the start-up Capital of the world, the event is considered iconic.
