Investing in street youths, incubating bright ideas

  Generation Enterprise is an all-volunteer group of young community leaders working on four continents to realise one revolutionary vision:  Investing in street youths, incubating bright ideas, transforming communities. In 2009, it launched a pilot project in Lagos, the world’s fastest-growing megacity. Its business training and incubation programme, YouthBank, equipped homeless and unemployed youth to build viable, sustainable businesses that would allow them to leave gangs, prostitution, odd jobs, and criminal activity.   Developed by Wharton and Oxford business students, McKinsey Consultants and Nigerian youth leaders, the organisation adapts lean start-up methodology from Silicon Valley to Lagos’ bottom-of-the-pyramid markets.

He lamented…

Nigeria, a rugged road to high returns

Bomb blasts, gun attacks, airline crashes, kidnappings, industrial-scale oil theft, armed robberies and fraud costing billions of dollars. Such things might give pause to anyone thinking of opening a business. In Nigeria, they happen with alarming frequency, and yet investors just keep coming. The reasons are many: alluring returns in this high-risk frontier market; a huge and growing population with latent potential for a consumer boom; light crude oil ideal for making motor fuel; and sophisticated financial markets. “We know it’s not risk free,” says Charles Robertson, global Chief Economist at Renaissance Capital. “But look around the world and find…
