We are pleased to invite you to join us and participate in the Youth Entrepreneurship Summit with the Overstrand Municipality’s Local Economic Development (LED) Department in close collaboration with the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform’s (DRDLR) Youth Development component.

Given the complex socio-economic conditions in South Africa, the Overstrand Municipality through Local Economic Development and the Department of Rural Development and Land Reform prioritises and values youth development and economic freedom through job creation through innovation and creativity. It is this reason that we call for all relevant stakeholders to open doors and support Young people through entrepreneurship revolution.

The purpose of the summit is to promote and encourage youth  entrepreneurship in the Overstrand:

  • To create a social dialogue , between potential Youth Entrepreneurs, the Overstrand Municipality, the DRDLR and other relevant national, provincial and local stakeholders
  • To disseminate key and relevant information and opportunities available for youth owned enterprises and support
  • To create a dialogue amongst relevant stakeholders who share common values and goals towards building a sustainable economy in the region
  • To instil an entrepreneurial mind-set, the ways of thinking and acting entrepreneurially and change the world.

The session aims to add more substance in addressing the (where and how’s) questions faced by the youth to unleash their dreams.   Therefore we would like you to base your participation in addressing the two popular questions faced by the youth.
