The Africa YES 2019 Demo Day is a special day that marks the culmination of the 2019 Cohort where entrepreneurs, mentors, facilitators, the broader Africa YES partners and the entrepreneurship community will come together to celebrate efforts made by the young social entrepreneurs in their entrepreneurial journey.
Over the past 10 weeks, we have been working with 20 social entrepreneurs tackling challenges in healthcare, agriculture, fashion, travel, youth wealth creation, education, mental well-being among other challenges.
Throughout this time, the entrepreneurs have gone through intensive hands-on sessions on leadership and entrepreneurship that have seen them validate the challenges they are solving, ideated and iterated on their solutions, build business models and working prototypes, created work plans and financial models while setting clear success metrics for their venture.
Now, the entrepreneurs are ready to share with the world their journey, successes and learnings, and seek support to enable them get to the next level.
During this day,
- 20 social entrepreneurs will pitch their ventures to an audience of judges, entrepreneurs, investors, mentors, industry experts, media, and the public.
- The 2019 cohort will officially graduate from the program.
- Attendees will get a first hand look at the social ventures, meet the founders, and network with other attendees, from the local and global ecosystem.
