About The Youth Village and the Afro-Caribbean Business Network Collaboration
The Youth Village develops, leads and expands opportunities for intergenerational conversations among Black entrepreneurs. Our aim is to cultivate a network of entrepreneurs from different generations that can support each other to establish and grow successful businesses, expand their network, increase each other’s competence and strengthening Afrocentric cultural identity through community building activities and bidirectional knowledge exchange. We work with entrepreneurs from ideation to full business development.
The Afro-Caribbean Business Network’s objective is to provide Black businesses with the resources they need to start, grow and scale up. The goal is to ensure that their network of businesses are prosperous—and part of the fabric of Canadian business for years to come.
ACBN’s network encourages the pursuit of entrepreneurship and developing connections to help business owners stay engaged during their entrepreneurial journey and leave a lasting legacy.
Together, the Youth Village and ACBN are collaborating to strengthen an ecosystem for Black entrepreneurs. Within the ecosystem, the Youth Village is focusing on Black youth ages 18 – 29.
