Youth and entrepreneurship: the future of Africa

Young people are a great force that will change the future of our continent. I have great hopes for the new generation and for what they are capable of. I am often surrounded by young people and I like to hear their plans for the future, their dreams. It is so good when I hear that they are committed and dedicated to the future of Africa! Like me, many young people believe that the answer lies in technology, innovation and entrepreneurship.

We have a continent with endless potential. And even better, we have young people who are willing to learn, to grow and to help their countries grow. When I ask them about the role of entrepreneurship and innovation in Africa’s future, the vision they give me is positive and full of hope for a better tomorrow.
