Youth Invest

Investing in the resourceful demographic dividend of Zimbabwe.

About Us

As Youth Invest, we believe the youth are an integral part of community change because of their resourcefulness and dynamic competencies, hence our commitment to invest in them. Through our thrust on inclusive entrepreneurship, we assist the youth to turn their dreams and ideas into concrete business and/ or social enterprises.
The emphasis on inclusivity goes beyond the inclusion of the ordinarily marginalized groups such as youth with disabilities and young women, it is also about supporting entrepreneurs from different sectors and backgrounds by creating a level playing field through advocacy and lobbying. Inclusive entrepreneurship is about developing the grit to start, acquiring the relevant skills and networks and progression from mere survival to long-term sustainability.
