About The Program
As a tech hub and an incubator, The Hub supports entrepreneurs through their start-up journey by providing rigorous incubation programs to enhance their business and digital skills, provide investment readiness training and business linkages for a more impactful business. The Ye! Gambia Chapter is headed by an advisor and an anchor. The Advisor and anchor work together in supporting entrepreneurs and organizing events and capacity building initiatives. Since being an anchor, The Hub has organized over a dozen events supporting entrepreneurs in the Ye! Community. Thus far, the events are the Ye! Meet and greet, a networking event that saw in attendance startups and a guest speaker who was Ndey Fatou Jabang, a creative entrepreneur and founder of flexfuzion. The startups were introduced to the Ye! Community and built business linkages. The Second event was an Agribusiness networking event that gave young entrepreneurs the opportunity to create business linkages and exposing them new business opportunities. Taxation and legal registration training was also conducted for startups, this was done to help guide them in registering their business and ways of paying their tax which is a necessity. The Hub is currently implementing the Ye! Agribusiness Incubation Program, supporting 20 entrepreneurs in skills development, digital literacy and many other important components which are underway for the training program.
