Africa Youth Entrepreneur Federation is a league of youth entrepreneurs from across the African continent that serves as a representative voice for young entrepreneurs of African Continental Free Trade Agreement.
Africa Youth Entrepreneur Federation began as an informal group of a few Africa youth entrepreneurship organizations that identified the need to form a synergy to mobilize their members for the African continental free trade area in late 2020.
The league is into advocacy programmes, training and capacity building, funding/investment mobilization, research and trade facilitation.
It is the mission of the African Young Entrepreneurs Federation to connect, engage and support young entrepreneurs in their quest to leverage African Continental Free Trade Area by driving trade and advocating for reforms.
Their vision is to be a foremost community of young entrepreneurs who are fully empowered to actively participate, contribute and benefit from the African Continental Free Trade Area.

I had also had the opportunity to serve in the Accounts Office for Regentropfen College of Applied Sciences as a temporary Accounts Assistant. Michael Osei currently had his internship at Transary Limited, where he served as intern in charge of finances as well one in charge of improving the accounting system. Transary Limited is a fast growing logistics and clearing firm and also deals with registration of business with Ghana Investment Promotion Center. In building on this experiences and exposure, I have had the zeal and enthusiasm to serve in any capacity relating to finance and accounting. This new challenge will help me to coach students and all and sundry who wish to be entrepreneurs in the areas of advocacy, funding and investments and all others aspects related to entrepreneurship.
