  1. There is no such thing as youth entrepreneurship, there is simply entrepreneurship fullstop. It’s not easy to start a business whether you are a youth or older. What is required is a supportive environment from bank interest rates, venture capital support, tax system and appropriate education. We have had science and engineering training for over 50 years at undergraduate level and postgraduate level for some time and our graduates do final year projects. What can be commercialized from such projects? This is how go-ahead countries have made a start. Enough of conferences where politicians come to make platitudinous and banal speeches. Lets make a start.

  2. Hi, please , for the time being i am in DRC , i am very much interrested in this YESBUD and i have applied.
    So i want to know, is it free access or chargeable, how much,? Should o start off?? Please i need more certitude before i start off… To avoid kind of ..there is no place for me….
