Microsoft, African Development Bank Partner to Promote Youth Entrepreneurship

By Maingi Gichuku

Through a public-private partnership model, the alliance aims to assist the creation of national institutions that will scale up financial and technical support for young entrepreneurs and increase their capabilities.

Under the African Development Bank’s Youth Entrepreneurship Investment Banks (YEIB) Initiative, Microsoft is expanding its relationship with the African Development Bank to support Africa’s youth entrepreneurs.

Microsoft will collaborate with the bank through its African Transformation Office (ATO) to promote youth entrepreneurship ecosystems, create jobs, and significantly scale impact in Africa through digital inclusion.
