Fifty young entrepreneurs took part in total across the three days. Additionally, there were some high profile speakers lined up for the opening and closing ceremonies. These included a representative from one of B’Yeah’s stakeholders, the SME Foundation, who through a partnership with microfinance organization MIDAS, are providing catalytic funds for start-up business owners to help them strengthen and scale their companies.
