Connecting Business Ideas to Opportunities

Play Video

Training 9,400 Youths

With a minimum of 200 trained youths per county, we expect to empower a significant number of young entrepreneurs.

6,580 New Businesses

Assuming a 70% success rate, we anticipate the launch of 6,580 new businesses.

26,320 Jobs Created

Each enterprise is expected to generate four jobs, directly or indirectly impacting approximately 184,240 households.

Our process is designed to discover, train, and showcase the best business ideas. Here is how it works:

The Approach

Youth express their interest in the competition through messages or advertisements.

Participants record a one-minute video explaining their business idea and fill out a Google form.

A panel of experts selects up to 200 participants per county to attend a one-day workshop focused on business idea generation and screening.

After training, participants have five days to fine-tune their ideas and record a second video pitch.

Expert judges select winners at the county level, and a county award ceremony celebrates their achievements.

County winners attend a week-long training on business plan development, after which they pitch their plans in a 10-minute video.
