Deadline for Submissions: April 16, 2023 | African German Young Leaders in Business (AGYLE) Program 2023 (Fully Funded to Berlin, Germany)

African German Young Leaders in Business (AGYLE) brings together young leaders from business, politics, and the media in Africa and Germany in order to build a long-lasting business network and create cutting-edge company strategies. Strengthening the German-African discourse and laying the groundwork for international economic cooperation are the two objectives of AGYLE.

Young African and German leaders are connected through AGYLE, which also creates a long-lasting business network. Forty contestants are chosen by a jury from Germany and African nations. Then, all young leaders are invited to a multi-day event where they work together to create original business models, network, and, along with the Young Leaders from prior years, create a long-lasting business network that spans both continents.
