Goodwall’s mission is to connect youth to opportunity. This platform accomplishes that very goal in an innovative way that strives to be accessible to all. Goodwall works with different universities, companies, and organizations. Together, they provide amazing opportunities for African entrepreneurs to show off their skills.
The growth of entrepreneurship in Africa is needed urgently. To create a bright future for youth, “28 million jobs will be needed each year in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia alone to employ the growing number of youth entering the working age population. This requires a substantial increase in both wage employment and entrepreneurs.” (World Bank).
Goodwall helps African entrepreneurs grow and become successful by providing an environment where young people can establish themselves as entrepreneurs. Goodwall gives students and young professionals opportunities to network on a global scale.
We have over 2 million users from over 150 different countries! You can also get funding and professional advice for your business ideas by participating in challenges. If you are a young entrepreneur or hoping to become one, Goodwall is the perfect app to help you launch your career.

I am a crocheter… My #EcoDesignChallenge was based on using natural forms of yarn like silk, banana fiber, bamboo fiber, and plastic instead of using synthetic fibers like acrylic yarn which is harmful to the environment because it is not biodegradable… [Goodwall] has helped me learn about how…my business can be profitable and also help preserve the environment.Noluthando from Johannesburg, South Africa, winner of the #EcoDesignChallenge.
