On Saturday, September 21, 2013 Young Entrepreneurs Association hosts the fourth YEAh Live at Montgomery Hall, Kennington Oval, London. Founded by Lorraine James, the Young Entrepreneurs Association runs a series of events aimed at young entrepreneurs. This edition of YEAh Live is a post fashion week/beauty special with an African theme and will showcase an Africa inspired fashion show with Mad Ethnik and Set Fashion Free.

Hosted by SoulSnatcha of RoofTop MC's and Nadina Goodman, throughout the day there will be networking and exhibitors selling products to the public alongside inspirational talks and performances.

Lorraine James, founder, Young Entrepreneurs Association, said: “My aim for the September 2013 YEAh Live event is for young people to gain knowledge of their origins and how this affects our business today. I aspire to do this through fashion, music and entertainment. My vision is for our young to experience the full advantages and benefits of networking, gain confidence to showcase their talent and products and receive mentoring, guidance and nurturing along with forged partner links to make their business plans viable.”

Highlights include keynote speaker Yana Johnson MBE who will share her experiences in climbing the ladder to running a successful beauty business. Dave VJ and Lindsay Wesker will showcase their new book Masters of the Airwaves – the Rise and Rise of Underground Radio, a history of British black music radio. There is also the chance to meet Julian Hall of Positive Inclusions to discuss Start Up Loans and review business plans with attendees to ensure they are funding-ready.
