Microsoft and AfDB to Help Young Entrepreneurs in Africa

Microsoft has announced that they have partnered with AfDB’s Youth Entrepreneurship Investment Banks Initiative.

In a recent announcement, Microsoft has disclosed that they are working with African Development Bank’s Youth Entrepreneurship Investment Banks Initiative to help entrepreneurs in Africa.

Much can be done to help foster youth entrepreneurship, driving greater economic inclusion for this key segment of the population, and ultimately building a more prosperous society.

We’ve already seen significant success working together on programs like Coding for Employment, which sets out to generate over 9 million jobs and reach 32 million adolescents and women throughout Africa in only 10 years.

Strengthening our partnership with Microsoft on the Youth Entrepreneurship Investment Banks (YEIB) is an important step on our way to harnessing Africa’s demographic dividend and helping to create millions of jobs for young Africans by 2025.
