Agenda 2063 calls for a full realization of Africa’s integration and sustainable development. The African Union Commission (AUC) is the hub-and-spoke of this agenda. The AUC recognizes that a critical mass of a developed and fully engaged human resource capital from across Africa gives impetus to the evolutionary process of Agenda 2013. In light of this, young entrepreneurs are pivotal to achievement of a prosperous, integrated continent as the future we want to see. It is advantageous for the African Union (AU) if its institutions engage the current generation of young African in active service towards the realization of the continental vision. In particular, if Africa is to reap the demographic dividend it must articulate comprehensive and coherent youth policies, legislations and strategies to facilitate rapid economic growth.

In line with this, the African Union Commission is currently seeking young entrepreneurs to drive the vision of a prosperous continent through local hubs in their communities. Union Commission is looking for young African entrepreneurs who are passionate about the need to drive entrepreneurship on the continent and have the capacity to influence action both in their local communities and at continental level.
