Youth Enterprise Movement
The Youth Enterprise Movement (YEM) is the EntrepreneurshipDevelopment unit of the African Centre for Youth Sports and Development (ACYSD). YEM aims to support Enterprise development by providing an innovation centre where creative and technologically inclined youths can incubate and build tomorrow’s businesses and technologies today.
The innovation centre is designed to promote innovations in the creative and digital industry. This is with the intent of advancing knowledge and promoting technological and economic developments. The Centre will provide office suites, meeting & conference facilities and co-working opportunities for innovators, entrepreneurs and investors looking to develop or fund innovative start-ups with high growth potential.
Young businesses need an environment where they can experiment with their ideas, a space to meet other young people of like minds, to interact and incubate ideas. The incubator spaces will be a series of small idea to big interactive purposefully designed spaces that will be rented out at relatively low-cost to small-scale creative and digital industry workers (freelancers or small companies) with the specific intention of creating a vibrant, collaborative environment.
