An idea worth spreading
Addressing youth employment in Africa
Higher education institutions in Africa will be invited to participate by bringing this opportunity to the attention of students and inviting them to register their development ideas and proposals with Developed Africa under this scheme. The role of each institution would be to act as a hub for the development and maturity of their studentsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ ideas and business plans by making them part of their studies. They would assist the student in creating their business plans and act as a central point of contact for validating and verifying the integrity of the young entrepreneur as well as a point of contact in terms of internet and ICT access.
The visibility of the business plans on www.developedafrica.com will permit suppliers and investors to evaluate the proposals and engage the entrepreneur in a bid to develop their proposal with clear mutual benefits or investment value.
