Nancy Kayitare, age 24, runs a start-up called TouTrip, a search engine for making travel arrangements in Rwanda (e.g., booking accommodations). She started the business three months ago after personally experiencing difficulty when trying to arrange trips to certain areas of the country. Youth Development Labs (YLabs) conducts a co-design workshop exploring methods to connect young Rwandan entrepreneurs and unemployed youth. Participants representing each group divide into focus groups. They then come up with creative ideas and solutions, create mock business plans and initiatives, and challenge the functionality of each other's proposals.
