We know private sector through entrepreneurship are the primary drivers in any economy.
Therefore, we want to give Gambian youths a chance to become successful entrepreneurs.
We want to support start-ups with tangible results and measurable long-term value businesses via development phases with a seed capital & mentorship to succeed in their journey.
Nearly 60% of the population are youths, more than half are unemployed. Youth face significant challenges with respect to employment outcomes.
We want Gambian and Africa youths to connect, innovate, learn, share and to be job creators in all sectors instead of job seekers.Youths are crucial to growing the economy
