Aim higher Africa & Forbes Africa join forces to empower Youngreneurs for Social Media Week

Leading Education not for profit organisation Aim Higher Africa teamed up with Forbes Africa to launch the first in its series of entrepreneurial discussions at the prestigious Lagos Business School.


Technology and the Youngpreneur brought together members of Forbes 30 under 30 to address the issue of Millennials and how they are using technology to create innovative solutions to build businesses that consequently bridge the gap between poverty and prosperity.

The panel was made up of leading young business experts Rex Idaminabo of Achievers Media Group, Adebola Williams co founder Red, Mary Ojulari, CFO CNBC and Forbes Africa, Edose Ohen founder glazed doughnuts and Nkechi "Ink" Eze, editor Bella Naija weddings.

Founder of Aim Higher Africa and Forbes Africa correspondent Peace Hyde moderated the discussion. The panel highlighted that 2016 was the year that millennials need to think about how to use adaptive technology in creative ways to solve challenges. Financial literacy will be key in a dire economic climate and how millennials use tech savvy tools to mitigate the looming recession will also be crucial for survival.

Aim Higher Africa in recent years have been instrumental in empowering the youth to achieve their fullest potential. Check out some shots from the event below:

The C.I.A runs the world.
Have all the brains in the world,if they don't approve,we remain where they have always placed us.
Solution!radical change in our style,and first end the whole tribal b***s**t.
Note!In the whole moderators, there was not a single northerner(i am not from the north).
when we really take control,all these educated people would start becoming relevant,and their result's would really start changing society for the better.
Good luck for now, but personally i am already tired of too frequent speeches,notice me seminars(is my skin yellow enough???),and no fu*ki**g!!! result!! after what 1960-2016(with a war,insurgencies in between spicing things up)
F**K Naija fake country(still un-serious after 56 years,JOKERS TO THE WORLD).
Linda(omalicha)how many naija's across the world committed fraud today?(according to your blog).
