AYEEN 2017: Airopay partners Africa’s Young Entrepreneurs

By Oluwagbenga Bankole




In a bid to uplift the business of the continent’s young entrepreneurs, Africa Young Entrepreneurs (AYE) has partnered with Airopay.
The President of AYE, Mr. Summy Francis made the disclosure when he addressed newsmen at the Kick off Africa’s Young Entrepreneurs Empowerment Nigeria (AYEEN) in Lagos recently.

He urged promising entrepreneurs to enroll with the organisations for assistance to attain their business success.

AYE is a global non- profit organisation with over 12.6 million members across 20 countries in Africa.

Airopay, also an NGO, on the other hand, is a global provider of e-money solution to ease the financial burden of its customers.

Francis said the zeal, innovations and vision of young entrepreneurs made his organisation to celebrate people with great minds.

“We support entrepreneurs by helping them with financial grants, offer them specialised skill training and mentorship.

“This has helped many of them to break free from the initial teething problems of startups and give them the confidence to take that leap to business success.

“It is very worrisome that most corporate organisations in Nigeria are not interested in the sponsorship of non-intellectuals.

“We are using this opportunity to call on all promising Nigerian entrepreneurs and business startups to register for AYEEN 2017,” the AYE national president said.

He urged government at all levels, corporate organisations, institutions and individuals to support Africa’s Young Entrepreneurs to create economic growth in Nigeria.

Francis said that investment in young entrepreneurs regardless of the calibre would secure the future of the nation, eradicate poverty, create jobs and expand economic growth.

Also, the Chief Executive Officer of Airopay, Mr Charles Oyakhilome, said that his organisation’s services aligned with the dreams of AYE.

“Our services align with the dreams of AYE to deliver monetary ease in businesses in Nigeria and the world at large.

“We support these entrepreneurs in terms of funding for their business to grow,” he said.

The application for the AYEEN 2017 program is closing any moment from now, and this year, AYEEN will empower up to 1,000 businesses. Yours could be one of them.
