CYE is an international competition created from the ground up by JCI to encourage, honor and celebrate outstanding young entrepreneurs and the role of innovation in their entrepreneurial rise to global success.

The price at the zonal conference level (in our case Africa and the Middle East) is $ 5,000 and access to the World Congress Finals. In CYE, every participant is a winner because everyone receives free training and mentorship valued at thousands of dollars.

Tawanda’s business idea pitch at the conference was “Drones in Rod Education”. Tawanda is a licensed drone pilot and also a drone consultant to CAAZ and also director of Zim Flying Labs. Tawanda will compete for the grand prize of $ 10,000 at the JCI World Congress in Johannesburg, where he will compete with finalists from Europe, Asia and the Pacific and the Americas.

Samuel Takudzwa Nehumba of JCI Zimbabwe also became the Public Speaking Champion at the Zone Conference and will also represent the region at the JCI World Congress which will be held in South Africa in November for the World Public Speaking Championships. Zimbabwe emerged victorious in a competition in which more than 10 participating countries from French and English speaking countries in Africa and the Middle East participated.
