In Africa today, about 3/4 of the population are an average age of 20 years and year on year, 10 million of these individuals join the labour market. A significant number of this labour force venture into entrepreneurship to escape the harsh realities of unemployment. The International Labour Organization (ILO) estimates that out of the 73 million jobs created in Africa, only 16 million are for young people between the ages of 15 and 24 years, accounting for 60% of African Unemployment. But how do we create and build sustainable jobs to tackle unemployment when a significant number of startups and SMEs fail yearly in Ghana?
