We Raise Young Entrepreneurs And Empower Them To Create Innovative Solutions To Tackle Basic Economic Problems

As a young African, launching a business that would be successful is no small task. No matter how amazing and huge you think your idea is, it still takes a lot of work, expertise and definitely sufficient capital for you to make it work. The Young Entrepreneurs Empowerment Project aims to raise, empower and support young Africans with a zeal for entrepreneurship, through their entrepreneurial journey till they become ideal entrepreneurs and business leaders who can tackle basic economic problems with innovative solutions and transform the economies of nations through sound entrepreneurial initiatives.

Why Youth Entrepreneurship in Africa?

Our focus on youth entrepreneurship in Africa is spurred by our belief /valid assertion that the young African populace is indispensable in our journey of sustainable development and that the seemingly insurmountable socio-economic and socio-political challenges in Africa can be solved by young, innovative and indigenous Africans. Entrepreneurs represent the demographic with the most potential to create millions of jobs and revenue on the continent, breaking the cycle of poverty and catalyzing deliberate and sustainable economic impact.

Our Impact

The Young Entrepreneurs Empowerment Project (Y.E.E.P.) since inception on 11th April, 2020, has raised, mentored and empowered up to 13,000 young African entrepreneurs across Africa through our Entrepreneurship Programmes, while continuing to provide capacity-building support, advisory and market linkages to thousands of young Africans through our networking platform, Elite Entrepreneurs Network.

Our beneficiaries are creating and growing trailblazing businesses that directly and indirectly create jobs and means of livelihood in their communities. They support all 17 Sustainable development Goals (SDGs) and are committed to achieving the United Nation’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Beyond this impact, We continue to advocate and propagate the more distinct and sustainable narrative of African youth entrepreneurship as the solution to unlocking the continent’s potential.
