We believe that the youth in this country are the key to a successful Gambia

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.

Support Start-Ups

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.

Gambian Youth

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
