Per a recent UN report, 70% of the sub-Saharan Africa population is under the age of 30. Such a high number of young people is an opportunity for the continent’s growth – but only if these new generations are fully empowered to realize their best potentials. It is expected that AfCFTA will establish a market of 1.2 billion people with a combined GDP of US$2.5 trillion in Africa, as cited by UNECA. These statistics highlight a potential economic game changer for the continent, if seized. With this knowledge, this summit will explore the entrepreneurial opportunities available to youth in Ghana through AfriVate Hub.
AfriVate Hub is born out of the insatiable penchant to lead a global social venture that offers innovative and cutting-edge solutions to individuals, corporate bodies and enterprises who are solving problems in African societies. AfriVate Hub is motivated by the desire to be a model for a contextually-based, yet globally applicable, consulting enterprise. This means AfriVate Hub is offering local solutions.
AfriVate Hub recognizes that thriving in the 21st century as an individual, business or government is largely dependent on collaborations and networks. AfriVate Hub connects people to opportunities, businesses to businesses and information to people as well as organizations who require it for impact.
