Globally, entrepreneurship is driving economic development - enabling job creation, investments, infrastructure development and more. With a median age of approximately 18 years, Africa is the "youngest" continent, and over the next several decades, today's youth in Africa will be at the core of entrepreneurship led economic development. The Afrise Challenge 2023 is an opportunity for aspirational African youth entrepreneurs to access global mentorship and structured programming that will enable them to take their ideas to reality.

Join us for this event to hear from successful African entrepreneurs and enablers about their journey, and how they are making an impact in their communities and the industry that they operate in.

You will also have the opportunity to hear from the Concordia University Leadership team about the 2023 Afrise Challenge, alongside Concordia's entrepreneurship focus and the Concordia Africa Initiative.

How can you participate? Join us in person or online by registering for the Zoom Meeting or watching live on YouTube.
