Young Entrepreneurs Business Forum (YEBF) and Vakai Capital have intensified the capacity building programme aimed at equipping young business people with relevant skills to enhance the profitability of their enterprises.

The country’s young and dynamic population has remained one of the critical comparative advantages in the economic growth prospects.

The young entrepreneurs are envisaged to lead the economic transformation.

YEBF has since embarked on a intensive capacity building initiative to equip the young business people with relevant skills and in the process contribute to the country’s quest to harness the youth dividend.

YEBF co-founder Mr Jacob Shamhuyarira said the training also saw the identification of several investment opportunities and business sustainability strategies.

The training initiative also saw the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the Ministry of Macro-Economic Planning and Investment Promotion officials making presentations on how the young entrepreneurs can tap into investment opportunities on the local and regional market.
