Challenges: What challenges might hinder the success of your project and how do you plan to overcome them?
The financial aspect, the novelty of the service locally, youth trust, service availability nationally.
Joinafric has tracked these challenges and thought long and hard to overcome it. On the financial side joinafric first uses the same idea that it is based upon, meaning it is securing financial capital and selling stocks, this method has successfully provided the human and financial resources that we need for companies even in Europe. These proposed services have developed over a long time in many countries of the world, so joinafric appealed to mentors in the field of finance and information technology to supervise them. Thus, a safe provision is established for youth in the protection of their project ideas, the confidentiality of data. For example, in Senegal, there Senegalese Office copyright (BSDA). Broadband does not cover the entire national territory, that is why the joinafric offices will be opened in areas with low internet or even no flow to train youth on the sale of services and business creation.
How does your idea help young people create bright futures and improve opportunities for meaningful and long-term careers?
The idea of joinafric is buying shares in new companies and bringing in expertise. That is why we seek mentors and African business angel investors to contribute the financial and human resources to the development of youth enterprises. Our idea is based on the participation of investors in the development and sustainability of young businesses in Africa. We hope that all business Angel investors, mentors, investors, young people, companies and individuals who are interested in actively participating in a project in any way possible. Thus, this collaboration enables young people to gain experience and know-how and perpetuates, at the same time, their employment.
