Major Newspaper Covers One of Our Graduations as youth participants Celebrate This Newspaper article covers one of our entrepreneurship youth empowerment graduation ceremonies in the City of Bo, Sierra Leone where the guest speaker Mr. Augustine Paul Tucker in his keynote address expressed his concern at the high rate of youth unemployment within Sierra Leone, which according to him, scared away several investors. He recommended that self-employment was the best option for members of the young generation that want to distance themselves from corruption. He congratulated and guaranteed the participants that, with their success in the MEYE-SL/Planestartup entrepreneurship online course, they were on the right path to contribute to personal, community, national and global development. As he ends by saying that he is sure that skills learnt will help the participants in strengthening them to develop socio-economic knowledge in catering, build-up-resilience to ownership and self-employment to businesses within Sierra Leone. Planet Startup operates in Africa, Brazil, China, Australia, and the US to mentor and coach young adults residing in remote or marginalized areas of the world to set up and run their own Internet-based companies as well as connecting them with partners to help them succeed. We believe talent and initiative are distributed equally over the planet; however, opportunity, technology, as well as access to capital, payment platforms, and markets are not and we are helping to fix that.
