Youth Entrepreneurship Summit (YES) 2013

The Youth Entrepreneurship Summit (YES) 2013 is a one-day free entrepreneurship preparatory event for Youth participants in Nigeria, to network and discuss issues relating to Youth unemployment and how entrepreneurship can reduce the rate of Youth unemployment in Nigeria. Continue

This YES 2013 is positioned to motivate and create excitement about entrepreneurship opportunities amongst Nigerian youth. This we will achieve by creating a platform where youths in various groups can come together to achieve a long term sustainability and economic growth in Nigeria.

We will use Social media platforms on a daily basis to engage youths in creative conversations on entrepreneurship and innovative ideas, providing them with timely relevant information on entrepreneurship and leadership training programs (both locally and internationally) which will help them in making informed decisions about getting involved in entrepreneurship.

The YES2013 will Launch the Youth Fill the Gap Network , after the training, participants can choose to join our Youth Fill the Gap Network where they will be trained and groomed on the business area they are interested in venturing as well as be duly informed of Scholarships, Sponsorship, Grants and training opportunities available for youths both inside and outside Nigeria.
