UNDP and Accenture launch YAS! to expand opportunities for youth


Young African entrepreneurs with potential to scale up across the region will soon have access to financing and support through a new innovative platform.

YAS!, or Youth for Africa and SDGs, was launched at the Responsible Business Forum taking place in South Africa’s capital, Johannesburg, from 25-27 June 2018.  The platform is an online portal developed by UNDP in partnership with Accenture South Africa. It aims to address the four main pillars of the entrepreneurship ecosystem: Information, Mentorship, Funding and Network.
