Africa Youth Conference Young people have the potential to act as agents of change and are significantly contributing to sustainable development globally and in Africa. Their innovations are making a difference in Africa, but their stories are yet to be heard to inspire others and strengthen political, policy and investment commitments by key stakeholders In efforts to support innovative youth entrepreneurs and facilitate knowledge management and exchange, UN Women, in collaboration with its partners, will host the Africa Youth Conference on 23 — 25 October in Nairobi, Kenya.
It supports the development and growth of youth entrepreneurship in Africa by creating a marketplace for eco-system players, namely investors, large corporates and governments.

Would you like to contribute towards the attainment of the SDGs and therein especially gender-related targets and indicators of SDG1 povertySDG 5 gender equality and empowerment of women and girlsSDG8 decent employment and SDG 9 industry, innovation and infrastructure?
Do you have the passion to help Africa progress- but struggle to find the support you need to turn your idea into reality Benefits: Winning entries will receive funding to develop, validate and scale innovative ideas.
The grants will be awarded to entrepreneurs who would like to test their innovative solutions or grow existing ventures, as per the following categories: In selected cases, UNDP and Accenture will also provide business development support to winning innovators, including access to mentors and capacity building to implement their solutions.
From the applications, UN Women, in collaboration with UNDP, will also identify additional youth entrepreneurs that have particularly innovative solutions to also invite them to the Africa Youth Conference, where their ventures will be profiled and exhibited.
