African entrepreneurs invited to apply for German programme


Applications have opened for the Westerwelle Young Founders Programme, which is looking for outstanding young entrepreneurs from developing and emerging countries to participate at the Young Founders Conference in Berlin, Germany.

The Westerwelle Foundation for International Understanding was established in 2013 and supports international collaboration between young entrepreneurs, executives and decision makers from around the world.

As part of the Young Founders Programme, for which applications close on April 30, the Westerwelle Foundation is hosting a Young Founders Conference in Berlin on September 13-16.

The focus of the event is to connect young founders from developing and emerging economies with each other and with the German startup scene. Participants will have the opportunity to meet and interact with successful German entrepreneurs and political decision makers, and join a network of like-minded outstanding young founders from developing and emerging countries.

During the one-year long Young Founders Programme, participants will also get access to a mentoring programme, invitations and scholarships for other entrepreneurship conferences, and online coaching and webinars.
