YouthBank, a small business incubator for street youth in Nigeria, is using the Barefoot MBA as part of its training for former street youth seeking microloans to start businesses. YouthBank cultivates former street youth to become independent business owners and create opportunities and jobs for other street youth. It launched its first incubator in Lagos last year and seeks to replicate its model around the world. A YouthBank team is adapting the Barefoot MBA for the first several weeks of a six-month curriculum, and though the adaptation is not yet complete, it’s received positive feedback in Lagos already.

We look forward to a strong and lasting partnership with YouthBank.
