It is an initiative of the Students and Youth Entrepreneurs’ Network (SYENet); a flagship Project of The African Network of Entrepreneurs (TANOE).

With most speeches and talks being delivered by young, smart and passionate student, graduate and youth entrepreneurs coupled with case studies and easy-to-apply resources Rock Your World is set to shift paradigms, challenge the status quo, raise global leaders and business moguls and discover and nurture potentials of the next generation of globally minded and innovative entrepreneurs.
