Young Visionist had been looking for ways to contribute and get more involved in African Digital businesses and help unemployed individual’s setup digital businesses. With an increasingly favourable digital business ideas and abundance of unique technology ideas coming out of the continent, the time was right to begin equipping Africans to become more digital inclined.
With the aid of other organizations and businesses, Young Visionist hopes to combine its efforts to create ideas that tackle everything from digital healthcare services, digital education and e-commerce and use these solutions to create digital employment. This will help digital entrepreneur’s monetise their products/services and gain access to a market of global users.
It was now time, to step up and open opportunities to more African ideas: We are looking forward to welcoming the first Digital Entrepreneurs and continuing to work together to drive innovation within African.
While the programme is currently due to begin in South Africa, success in this first stage of the project will lead to expansion into the rest of the continent over the next few years.Digital Workshop Registration | Program Outline | Sponsors
