About Us

What do we do?

We provide free business development services to entrepreneurs in Africa.

Entrepreneurs who work with us are supported to run their businesses so that they help solve a social problem, are environmentally friendly and make a financial profit.

Why are we needed?

The future of Africa is entrepreneurship.

We exist to empower passionate, innovative and creative entrepreneurs. We give them support as they fulfill their visions for stronger communities and a healthy environment.

Why are we different?

We acknowledge and give a voice to innovative entrepreneurs who lack access to traditional growth avenues.

We believe in the self-determining power of our entrepreneurs. Our strategy is to respect and support the entrepreneur – not to tell them how to run their business.

1.Unique—You should be a true entrepreneur with an idea that is different than any other existing company.
2. People—Your company should address a social problem. It should improve your customer’s lives.
3. Profit—Your company must be for-profit.
4. Planet—Your company must conserve the environment or help animals.
