Create Entrepreneurs and Managers

Let’s develop ideas that support entrepreneurs along the continuum of the journey from self-employment to opportunity generation for others.

The reality is that most youth in East Africa will work in the informal sector. Many young people aspire to own their own businesses and be entrepreneurs, but do not have the information, skills and support to make these dreams reality. An important component of this is the ability to move from a poorly paid, single person business to one that provides a sustainable livelihood for the entrepreneur and eventually, their employees. Then, once small or medium enterprises are established, a big obstacle to effective expansion are management skills.
