Youthpreneur Business Summit (#YBS2017)

The annual YOUTHPRENEUR BUSINESS SUMMIT (YBS) brings together innovative and ambitious youths to inspire and challenge one other in entrepreneurial approaches to the Nigerian economy. The summit focuses on learning, sharing ideas and mentoring for young entrepreneurs between 18 and 40 years.

This year, we expect 800 entrepreneurs to attend the summit. The theme ‘‘Entrepreneurship: Creating Viable Solutions Through Innovations’’ was chosen to underscore the need for enterprises in Nigeria to introduce revolutionary technologies and ideas that can create solutions to our numerous problems as a country.

There is a need to empower these businesses to become more innovative in their approaches to product development, business processes, and other valuable strategies.

YBS 2017 will create a platform for young entrepreneurs to also learn from industry experts and successful but young entrepreneurs who have embraced innovative approaches in their businesses.

#YBS2017 will also create a platform for learning, business pitch competition, product/service exhibitions, networking and business-to-business partnerships.
