YouthWave MENA is a regional innovation hub connecting globally that aims to empower young social entrepreneurs and innovators and help them recognize their roles towards sustainable, social and economic development as well as benefit from our academic and non-academic programs, spot opportunities and solve real-world problems. We also support the youth by becoming a center stage to attract regional and global investors, partners and clients to the region’s largest youth-led sustainable impact startups and businesses ecosystem while promoting innovation, science and technology. In December of 2020, we launched our first initiative towards empowering young social entrepreneurs in the form of a series, which later developed into a podcast and became quite popular among young audiences. YouthTalk Middle East and North Africa (MENA) is a series that highlights several SDGs and promote awareness by discussion as well as spotlighting several youth leaders, social entrepreneurs and innovators from across the region including Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Tunisia and the UAE. The series had featured a total of 30+ speakers.
