100 Young African CEOs to Be Shortlisted to Attend the 6th Young CEOs Business Summit | Rave Aspire!
Young CEO’s Business Summit, a prestigious global business summit that seeks to empower and redefine business collaborations between Africa and the rest of world, heads to Germany for its second Europe Convention. The summit which previously was hosted in London in 2015 will be hosted this year in Dusseldorf, Germany for the very first time and will enjoy partnership with Europe’s leading business school ‘WHU’ which also doubles as the venue for this bravura event. Taking into consideration the quality of partnerships this 6th edition enjoys, it is set to be the prime and most rewarding edition for eligible young entrepreneurs from Africa, lead by ADYFE – African Diaspora Youth Forum and their counterpart in Germany and other parts of Europe.
1. The YCBS Dusseldorf-Germany 2016 aims to gather 250 cautiously selected young entrepreneurs from Africa and Europe to discuss the THEME: Closing the Entrepreneurship Gap – the global impact on emerging markets; and
2. Business models shaping the international, regional and industry agendas in addition to the theme of the summit as scheduled.
The summit will not only have international business men and women converging to discuss the theme, but UNIDO and WHU business school veteran mentors will also feature as speakers and panelists.
Part of the session will be dedicated to business collaboration between African start-ups and that of their counterparts in Europe as that is not only imperative but necessary to reduce the global job deficit currently ravaging the world. Coordinated support for start-up and funding for small businesses that are capable of enriching and creating many jobs will also be considered during the pitching session.
In addition, the evening of the second day will be dedicated to raising funds for two deprived primary schools in the rural areas of Nigeria and Zambia which are in deplorable conditions. This black tie gala event will feature celebrities, successful CEOs, venture capitalists, diplomats and mayors from Europe and Africa who are committed to using their wealth to support humanity and raise entrepreneurship to centre stage. All delegates are eligible to pitch at the event and will be given equal opportunities to express themselves and showcase their skills provided they indicate their interest to pitch 30 days to the event date.
