Imagine
   a West Africa where  
  entrepreneurs have access
 to resources, where innovation is
  the expectation, and where youth
 actively lead the development
of their country.

 
 
 
 
 

DARE TO INNOVATE


We are a youth-led movement to end unemployment in West Africa. We invest in the entrepreneurship ecosystem to ignite social change.

Africa has the youngest population in the world.


200 million people are between the ages of 15 and 24 — 
this is equivalent to 2/3 of the U.S. population.
 

60% of youth in Africa are unemployed.
 

13 million more youth are expected to enter
the job market in the next ten years.
