High youth unemployment in Nigeria is a socio-economic and security threat to the country. Entrepreneurship is an important vehicle for harnessing youth creativity and entrepreneurial potential. However, young entrepreneurs face challenges such as lacking requisite business skills, inability to access finance, and limited experience to navigate the competitive business landscape.
Afrigrants support youth-led start-ups by providing advisory services, mentorship and seed capital. Afrigrants focuses on aspiring entrepreneurs that have great ideas and need an infusion of a small amount of capital to commercialize the ideas.
