Ennovate Talent Academy will be the first of its kind in Africa, which was designed to meet the need of engaging 5000 young Africans across the continent in the next 5 years.

2. Build business capacity in 100 young aspiring African youths to enhance their knowledge in running successful business venture. This will be inform of business coaching and mentoring with self-learning and practical engagement activities.
The scope of the project is divided into 3 segments in order to cover most economy driven areas.

The talent development programme sectioned into two phases;
1. Virtual weekly classes with their partnering institution through their interactive and centralized App, with one physical class per week for a period of 2 months
2. Internship placement of all their trainees in startup companies for a period of one month. These two sections is aimed at providing these youth credible workplace skills and competencies that will make them fit into the workforce for higher productivity. They will be graded weekly for the virtual classes and also graded by the startup they are placed for one month internship.
The second segment of the talent academy project is to coach and mentor young and aspiring entrepreneurs through virtual touch point that will be handled by business professionals. This is to support young entrepreneurs in gaining full knowledge of business systems and products design. 80% of the programme will be implemented through our Learning App to enable them reach more youth across Africa. 20% will be physical touch point in chosen locations.
The third segment is the annual HR Fair and Business summit where they will bring businesses together to learn trending business strategies from renowned global business players, share good case practice that is adoptable regionally in growing each industry and also create a platform for employment for our trained talents and investment opportunities for our young aspiring entrepreneurs.
They are expecting to create sustainable impact in Africa by developing the young population to start playing significant role in transforming Africa and the rest of the world. They hope to achieve the following outcome from the project.
