Kenya: Celebrated entrepreneur calls for better policies and resources to support youth and women entrepreneurship

Multi-award-winning entrepreneur Ahmad Ashkar has called on policymakers to develop better policy options, backed by dedicated resources to support the youth and women to become successful entrepreneurs.

Addressing a forum organized by the Eastern Regional office of the African Development Bank in Nairobi last week, Ashkar, CEO and founder of the Hult Prize Foundation, said  99% of youth do not think they can be entrepreneurs.  “We should equip them with financing, tools, and training in soft skills, which is lacking in the current education system,” he said.
