Initiated by the Agency for Business and Economic Development (AWE) and Germany – Land of Ideas, and funded by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), the AGYLE programme is focusing this year on the topic of “Circular Economy – How young leaders are shaping the transformation”. The programme is directed at young leaders up to the age of 40 who are taking a proactive role in shaping the transition towards a circular economy and are working on innovative solutions in sectors such as textile, construction, electronics, packaging and food.

AGYLE Live Week and alumni network

An international jury will select 40 young leaders from all submissions – 15 from Germany and 25 from the relevant African countries. The Young Leaders selected will be invited to join a week of events in Berlin in September 2024. Here, the focus will be on interdisciplinary exchange, industry-specific matchmaking formats, impetus from key figures from the realms of business and politics, and the further development of leadership skills.

The programme’s participants will be able to join the exclusive AGYLE business network, which now comprises 120 Young Leaders from Ethiopia, Ghana, Rwanda, Tunisia, Senegal, and Germany. The network reflects the diversity of stakeholders and industries likely to play a key role in the future – from startups to corporations, from digital technology and the circular economy to the agricultural and food industries. Activities include e.g. regular digital events, professional input as well as additional networking opportunities.
