ZimTrade Eagles Nest Youth Export Incubation Programme 2022 For Zimbabwe Entrepreneurs

ZimTrade Eagles Nest Youth Export Incubation Programme 2022 For Zimbabwe Entrepreneurs – ZimTrade has launched a youth export incubation programme titled Eagles’ Nest that will run from March to December 2020 in Harare, Bulawayo, Mutare and Gweru.
The objective of the programme is to nurture youth-led SME’s into export-ready companies.

This will be achieved through various interventions that are aimed at improving the competitiveness of youth-owned enterprises and developing linkages to local and international markets.

Undoubtedly, the youth are an important demography in the global economy and according to the United Nations, Africa has the fastest growing youth population in the world, with approximately 60 percent of its population under the age of 24.
The International Trade Centre (ITC) states that, “a focus on youth in trade is particularly relevant today, given that young people account for a large and growing proportion of the population in many developing countries.”

ITC further notes that many Zimbabwe’s young people are increasingly showing interest and venturing into sectors such as agriculture and agro-processing that perform well on the export market.

Considering this, the Eagles nest programme capitalises on the successes of some of the youth-led businesses on the local market, which also indicate potential for export market.
Allan Majuru, ZimTrade CEO said it is important to include young people in all activities aimed at increasing Zimbabwe’s share of the export market.

“Youth represent the future of a society and its economy therefore it is important that we include the youth when we talk of increasing Zimbabwean exports.
“The youth incubation programme will ensure that young people are capacitated and able to create sustainable export enterprises that guarantee the future trade success for Zimbabwe,” said Majuru.

With regards to implementations, the incubation programme will be divided into 3 phases where 10 out of 100 youth-led companies will be chosen to participate in various training and interventions to capacitate them for the export markets.
After receiving support, the 10 youth-owned SMEs will contest in the national final were the overall winner will be selected.

The winner of Eagles Nest progamme will get a chance to receive support from ZimTrade to attend trade fairs in ideal markets specific to their products and a six-month expert intervention from PUM and SES organisations to ensure their businesses can scale up and improve the product competitiveness on the export markets.

A television reality show will be produced out of this programme as well, with the objective to gain an international audience which will give an opportunity to showcase the ingenuity of young Zimbabwean entrepreneurs to the world.
