The Youth Economic Alliance Non-profit Company (YEA) is an entity established to drive the development and advancement of youth entrepreneurship – all with a clear intent of building a thriving entrepreneurial eco-system.
YEA champions the focused creation of High Impact Scalable Startups and globally competitive entrepreneurs through targeted programmes that accelerate economic growth and job creation prospects the most, as well as providing access to resources and linkages needed to realize their potential as young social and economic entrepreneurs.
The YEA, through policy advocation and lobbying, understands that creating a sustainable and enabling environment for youth entrepreneurship and SMME advancement begins by influencing the existing policies that act as hindrances and barriers in the pace of change. The system is built around policy and subsequent regulations. The policy contributions we make today will change the landscape for the next generation of entrepreneurs.
