Diaspora Youth Talk Award (DYTA) – “Rewarding innovation in Entrepreneurship”

November 26 @ 10h00 - 11h00 CET




We are pleased to present to you ADEPT’s first ever entrepreneurship award, Diaspora Youth Talk Award (DYTA).  

Under the theme Rewarding innovation in Entrepreneurship, the Diaspora Youth Talk Award will take place on Friday 26 November 2021 

In the beginning of 2021, ADEPT implemented a commission centred on Youth and Entrepreneurship within its organisation. With this, it seeks to better monitor and support activities undertaken by African diaspora youth.  Also, ADEPT strives to  make this one of the most important pillars in the coming years.  

Therefore, it has chosen to reward innovative and inspiring projects undertaken by the African diaspora youth in Africa. On Friday 26 November, during the Diaspora Youth Talk, it will organise a pitching session to let diaspora entrepreneurs present the results they have achieved on the ground. The most innovative and successful entrepreneur will be rewarded.  

We are delighted to invite you to participate ! Below are the criteria to a participation:  

  • Entrepreneurs from the African diaspora in Europe and aged between 18 to 35
  • The project must be located on the African continent
  • The activity must have impacted more than 10 people directly or indirectly
  • The activity must have an innovative element
  • The project should be replicable in other African countries

The winner will receive a prize worth €1000 ! 

Also, the winner will get a fully-sponsored Zidicircle Diaspora Entrepreneurship Bootcamp (April 2022 Cohort) where he/ she will access;

  • 10 modules of business training
  • A chance to pitch to our venture backers investors
