Ye! Enterprising Youth Webinars: Connect with Experts and Business Leaders

You asked for it! We deliver!

The Ye! Community by the Youth and Trade Programme from ITC is bringing you a new webinar programme with three core themes:

Connect. Learn. Share

The Why

We are bringing you a new webinar programme to help address three core issues the community has highlighted- access to experts, such as investors and business professionals, access to tools and resources and information on how to use them, and stories and exposure so that youth entrepreneurs can get inspired and connect with peers! The Ye! Enterprising Youth webinar programme seeks to remove silos around information through a regularly scheduled programme with guests from our network and to ensure that the Youth and Trade programme is consistently connecting and delivering on its goal to connect 100,000 youth with market-ready skills!

The What

Each webinar will fall under one of the three themes or series: Connect, Learn, or Share. Each webinar will bring you information from our vast partner network, from within ITC, or from the youth entrepreneurs that make up the Ye! Community. Some partners we will be collaborating with include the African Business Angels Network (ABAN), Citi Alumni Network, Youth Alliance for Leadership and Development in Africa (YALDA), Lex Mundi, Venture Capital for Africa (VC4A), Habitat, and the Commonwealth Youth Council, just to name a few. These webinars will be a one-stop-shop for entrepreneurs looking for business insights, information, resources and connection.

The upcoming episode 4 of the Share series is entitled: In conversation with Jeph Acheampong, Founder, Blossom Academy

This webinar aims to hear from a successful entrepreneur about his entrepreneurial journey and lessons learnt on the way.  This episode will take place on 19 November, at 17:00 (GMT), on Instagram Live. Click here to join live discussions!

In this live session, we will invite Jeph to share his journey as an entrepreneur and his advice and tips for young entrepreneurs to succeed. He will also answer the questions live from the audience!

The Ye! Enterprising Youth webinars will take place throughout the duration of 2020 and will occur between once or twice a month for between 30 minutes to 1.5 hours.
