Assessing the Impact of Entrepreneurship on Job Creation and Poverty Reduction Among Nigerian Youths

About this Report

While efforts to support youth entrepreneurship have been ongoing for over a decade, there is inadequate evidence of which initiatives and programs have succeeded or not. Notably, little to no documentation exists on the impact of entrepreneurship on youth livelihood and job creation capacity. This study sought to assess the impact of entrepreneurship on job creation and poverty reduction among Nigerian youths, with the broader aim of driving practical policymaking.
