The report “Job Creation in Sub-Saharan Africa: Entrepreneurs. Governments. Innovation” will ascertain how youth and young adults in key sub-Saharan African countries view the state of entrepreneurship in the region; its role in sustainable and urgent job creation; where they feel the opportunities lie; and how they can be supported in creating entrepreneurship-led jobs that today’s innovation economies demand.

Fueling entrepreneurship skills amongst African youth and catapulting SMEs across key sectors is crucial for sustainable job creation.
