The Young CEOs Summit & Honours is NOT all talk. The 'Award Dinner' will celebrate the outstanding contributions of two diverse categories of Honorees.
Category A: Citizens/Foreign Nationals/Entities that have made outstanding contributions to Youth empowerment, youth development and youth entrepreneurship development in Nigeria.
Category B: Under 40 Young CEOs/President/Founder across the private, public and development sectors who have made outstanding contributions to national prosperity development.
In addition, we are launching the Young CEOs A.I.D (Africa Investors Dealroom) to expand and empower the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Nigeria and specifically in Abuja by inspiring and investing in youth-led socioeconomic innovations and entrepreneurial ventures.
Undoubtedly, young people are the real competitive edge of Nigeria and with the category of young people that make up the Young CEOs at the Abuja Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI), rest assured that Nigeria’s economic potential will be maximized.
In a nation with high rate of youth unemployment, multidimensional poverty and all manner of social vices perpetrated mostly by young people, having a crop of young people who have chosen not to be a part of the problem, but striving daily to create value-adding changes from our long-standing challenges and utilizing their platforms to inspire and empower other young people, is a blessing that cannot, and must not be ignored.
