The YEA will organize a career and entrepreneurship fair in Tamale, in the northern regional capital.
This aims to provide jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities closer to the inhabitants of the northern region of the country as part of the government’s One Million Jobs initiative.
The show called âEntrepreneurship Pitch Fairâ hopes to introduce young people to the pitches of entrepreneurship and start-ups. It is scheduled to take place on Thursday, October 28, 2021 at Tamale Sports Stadium between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on the same day.
After previous shows where young people have converged by the thousands at the Accra International Conference Center to interface with business owners and businesses, the Tamale Fair seeks to encourage young people, in addition to seeking out deals. employment, to venture into entrepreneurship.
All they need to do is register their ideas and business proposals at the Fair.
In order to manage the number of participants, the show will take place in two sessions. The first session will be held from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. while the second session will last from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
There will be resource people to support participants, start-ups and job seekers through career counseling, capacity building, entrepreneurship and the pitch competition, among others.
Preparations are well underway to host the event at Tamale Stadium, due to the expected number of job seekers flocking to the site to interact with business owners, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and businesses.
YEA Regional Director Haruna Mohammed is optimistic about the event as he looks forward to a successful program to give hope to young people in the North.
He is full of praise for the Agency for bringing the initiative to the North. He finds it a rare opportunity for northern businesses to be offered such a large platform to showcase their products and services.
He finally called on all stakeholders interested in employment and job creation to attend the show on Thursday, October 28, 2021.
