TICAD Youth Entrepreneurship Forum Recommendations and Conclusions (Nairobi, 28 August 2016)

UNU-IAS, the University of Nairobi and the University of Tokyo GPSS-GLI jointly organized, with the support of the African Development Bank, an Africa Youth Entrepreneurship Workshop on the theme of  “African Youth entrepreneurship Development for Sustainable Industrialization”  from 25 – 27 August 2016 at KCB Leadership Centre in Nairobi, Kenya.


The workshop, planned and implemented by ESDA’s Next Generation Researcher (NGR) team, brought together  30 young African entrepreneurs and 25 young African researchers.During the three-day workshop, the participants heard keynote messages and lectures by resources persons and held group discussions on key areas of youth entrepreneurship for sustainable industrialization in Africa. They also made a field visit to the factory of a Kenyan entrepreneur  Lorna Rutto of Ecopost participating in the workshop.

jica_logo At the end of the workshop the participants agreed to a set of conclusions and recommendations to pursue further collaboration between young entrepreneurs and researchers, which was subsequently presented at the TICAD Youth Entrepreneurship Forum . The participants’ three recommendations were to:

  1. Develop a collaborative network of young African entrepreneurs and researchers to share streams of entrepreneurial innovations and experiences to establish a linked system of entrepreneurship development;
  2. Expand and increase the number of business incubation centers across Africa to enable young entrepreneurs and researchers collaborate in joint entrepreneurial innovations.
  3. Develop and test entrepreneurial training courses and programs to be jointly hosted by African higher education institutions, including, in particular, elaboration of multi-layered training schemes which are field-oriented and reflecting socio-economic and cultural conditions in African countries and which will be effective in attracting and generating streams of business innovators and industrial leaders who can contribute to the promotion of  high growth and sustainable industrialization in Africa (‘African’ MBA). Efforts in this direction should be based on the network of the young entrepreneurs and researchers.

The Forum started with a brief presentation of the Conclusions and Recommendations of the Youth Entrepreneurship Workshop by ESDA/NGA Coordinator, Dr. Emmanuel Mutisya, who also served as the moderator for the entire forum. Then keynote messages were delivered by President Akinwumi Adesina of AfDB and Cabinet Secretary Sicilly Kariyuki of Kenya’s Ministry of Public Service, Youth and Gender Affairs. A panel discussion followed on the theme of the ‘role of entrepreneurship and research for sustainable industrialization in Africa’, with Prof. Peter Mbithi (Vice Chancellor, University of Nairobi), Mr. Mr. Kevit Desai (Kenya Private Sector Alliance), Dr. Assie Lumumba (Professor, Cornell University) and a South African entrepreneur who participated in the Youth Entrepreneurship Workshop, Ms. Kgatlhanye Thato (CEO, Rethaka), serving as panelists. The forum, filled with lively and constructive exchanges, ended with a closing statement by Prof. Kazuhiko Takeuchi (Senior Vice Rector, UNU), which endorsed the recommendations by the young entrepreneurs and researchers to pursue their collaboration for the promotion of sustainable industrialization in Africa.

Invitation to attend a Youth Employment and Entrepreneurship Skills Development Forum (YEES-Forum)| 2016 taking place in Senegal

Theme: ‘Enhancing partnerships for 21st Century Skills: youth as job creators, not job seekers.’

The African Union Commission in collaboration with ECOWAS, the National Agency for the Promotion of Youth Employment in Senegal and YALI are pleased to announce a call for applications to the Youth Employment and Entrepreneurship Skills Development Forum (YEES-Forum). The forum aims at bringing young African entrepreneurs to learn, network, share experiences and good practices, motivate each other and showcase their businesses and thereby be an inspiration to one another. The YEES forum is scheduled to be held from the 5th of October to the 7th of October in Dakar Senegal. This forum targets the Francophone Countries and follows the inaugural forum that was held in Kenya in 2014 targeting Anglophone Countries.

The YEES forum is driven by the realisation that interventions focused on linkages will improve the value chain by enabling the flow of critical services through embedded arrangements. In addition to peer to peer linkages, these interventions shall also focus on linking regional competitive youth entrepreneurs to industry champions thus addressing some of the challenges faced by young people, particularly women in business and providing a platform for peer learning.

The forum aims to attract entrepreneurs with scalable businesses who are currently employers of labour and are interested in working towards a better Africa.

Participants at the forum will benefit from:

  • Improved business development skills through practical workshops;
  • Collaborative learning and sharing of experiences to increase success rates for
    business start-ups among young entrepreneurs;
  • Opportunity to identify successful business men or women to act as Mentors
    for young entrepreneurs;
  • Opportunities to engage with young entrepreneurs in dynamic sectors of the emerging intra-Africa trade including extractives and agri-business.

The program will include:

  • Training: Training sessions on core business development including building
    a sustainable financial structure and personal development. The sessions will
    also introduce participants to various mentoring techniques as well as new tools for effective mentoring.
  • Exhibition: This exhibition will give opportunity to young entrepreneurs to
    showcase their products and explore new market opportunities. Business
    development service providers will also be invited to proffer advice to the young entrepreneurs.
  • Field Visits: Participants visit a successful enterprise owned by young
    entrepreneurs in the host country. This is expected to inspire the participants
    and serve as successful models for their own enterprise development and
  • Experience Sharing: Key business organizations and leaders will be identified
    to facilitate the forum. The regional entrepreneurship development platform to
    be established shall provide back stopping for experience sharing, mentoring
    and business development services

Date and Venue: The YEES Forum will take place from 5th to 7th of October 2016 in Dakar Senegal.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Open to Citizens of African Francophone Countries;
  • African youth between the ages of 15 and 35. Women are strongly encouraged
    to apply;
  • Must be able to speak and work in at least one AU working language (English,
