What is AIESEC Nigeria’s Youth2Business Forum?
Youth2Business Forum being organized by AIESEC Nigeria is a one day event that would bring together corporate Nigeria and the youths in Nigeria with the single purpose of coming up with solutions to some of the social challenges in Nigeria. It would also be an avenue for companies to tap into the energy and creativity of youths in solving some of their peculiar challenges.
Approximately 70% of Nigeria’s population, representing about 98 million people, are youths. We believe there are huge potentials within this section of the population. We believe that Youths in Nigeria not only have the creativity to solve challenging problems in Nigeria, but they also possess the energy to be persistence. The forum; Youth2business therefore seeks to provide a platform for the youths to find a voice and use their energy and creativity to solve these issues.
The Forum would also allow corporate Nigeria: Companies in Nigeria to harness this energy and creativity in youths to proffer solutions to some the peculiar challenges being faced by these companies. From how to leverage technology to increase market share, to the best way companies could attract talents, students attending Youth2business would come together and find solutions to challenges like this.
To make Youth2business forum work, conversation would be hosted using the Open Space Model which would allow for rapid ideas generation and flexibility.
At the end of the day, the solutions, ideas, concepts and innovations generated at the forum would be published by a leading media company in Nigeria.
