The Summit will be held at Europe’s leading business School, WHU Otto Beisheim School of Management, from 24th to 25th September 2016. It aims to close the entrepreneurship gap and its global impact on emerging markets.

Under the theme: “Unifying German Businesses and Global Entrepreneurs: Investing in Africa and Its Impact on Global Scale”, the core mandate of the Summit is to redefine business collaboration between Germany and Africa, together with the rest of the World.

“The Young CEO’s Business Summit aims to inspire, empower, motivate and support African and World Venture Leaders to rethink entrepreneurship in our fast changing world by exploring new approaches and fresh opportunities to business success,” said Dr Justina Mutale, who is a Featured Speaker and Founder/CEO of the Justina Mutale Foundation for Leadership.

It will also feature prominent German and European Investors and Serial Entrepreneurs, who include the Department for International Business Services Germany; AHP Capital; Wealth Management and Investment; and many others.

Barrister Rex Idaminabo, Co-Founder of the Young CEOs Business Forum, said: “As world leaders gabble with the outbreak of unemployment as a major global challenge, experts say the greatest hope for a turnaround depends mostly on SMEs and Chief Executive Officers continuously come under spotlight as the world look up to their innovation and talent to drive business growth and thus provide remedy for the chronic unemployment around the World.”

The Young CEO’S Business Summit is designed for pioneering CEOs, as well as emerging and next-generation global Business Leaders, who aspire to conduct their businesses in tandem with global best practices. These are the CEOs that focus more on creating value for all of their stakeholders to fulfil a deeper purpose of their organization, which is giving back to society and improving the quality of life in the communities that they work in.

The Young CEOs Global Business Summit will close with the CEO’s Global Awards Ceremony at a fundraising Gala Dinner to recognise and celebrate inspirational and outstanding young CEOs, and to raise funds for deprived primary schools in the rural areas of Nigeria and Zambia.
