Youth unemployment especially in Nigeria has become a threat to socio-economic peace and stability.
Nigeria has one of the highest rates of youth unemployment (23.9 percent in 2011) in Africa and with jobs scarce and the ever-mounting pressure to earn; many young Nigerians between the ages of 15-24 years (about 30% of Nigeria’s population) turn to cybercrime to earn a living.

“Nigeria is a country where students do not study, workers do not work, ministers do not administrate, and where cunning religious clerics hold the order of the day. However, it is terrific for the future of the country to finally discover a fast growing community of young Nigerians – some of Africa’s finest self-made intellectuals, strategic thinkers & career leaders of struggle who notoriously do not rely on the Nigerian government.” mentioned Dr. A.N Adewole, a respected senior lecturer of the University of Ibadan.

This past year, eStreet.com.ng is focused on addressing the unemployment crisis through Entrepreneurship Development & Supporting Innovation by engaging in expansive regional business plan competitions to select winning proposals by eStreet ‘’Roundtables’’ (StartUps’ Innovation Challenge) and creating access to markets for goods and services for young entrepreneurs – Web Trade. eStreet is also dedicated to providing small grants (ranging from $500 to $3000) to support new ideas from young entrepreneurs and from organizations with creative programmes for supporting Nigerian youth.

eStreet.com.ng delivers real world skills like professional development, leadership training, project management, initial capital & funds sourcing initiatives, interactive online content, business blogs, business directory access, mentor-led activities, networking and communication resources to help young savvy people be the CEO of their Careers – fast and free ” said Kunle Oloyede - Director for Brand & Communications Marketing for eStreet Technologies, Inc.
