Brief Conference Overview:
Africa has recently established itself as the new global investment hub and is experiencing unprecedented growth rates that will continue for years to come. With more young people in its population than any other continent, Africa’s inability to effectively incorporate the economic participation of its youth poses immense social challenges.

There has been wide recognition that encouraging entrepreneurship and a culture of self-sustenance amongst African youth is the strongest weapon in the battle against rising youth unemployment rates. At YALDA we also believe in harnessing the potential of Africa’s youth. All over Africa young minds are brimming with solutions to the continent’s most pressing issues, and it is essential to give these youth the avenues and resources to successfully bring these ideas to fruition in their respective countries and communities.

We are excited to have you at this year’s YALDA conference to not only gain an understanding of the opportunities in Africa, but to empower you to lead visible and ground-breaking change on the continent. This will be done through an entirely new and more interactive format consisting of five techniques:

· providing a platform for idea generation

· idea refining and planning workshops

· industry specific idea presentations to expert panels

· resources exhibition

· networking sessions.
