It is encouraging to note that efforts are being made to bring the African Youth up the speed of the relevance of entrepreneurship to our life's and livelihoods. Our development at this point in our life and position in the global community requires that we win and empower countless numbers of young people to take their destinies into their own hands build empires for themselves on African soil. I do commend the thinkers and creators of such platforms.
