Our Vision: We are all African entrepreneurs. We believe in the potentials of our continent and its people. Most of us are digital natives, and those who are not, rely on those who are to meet the challenges of this accelerating transformation of the way enterprises are run, services are offered and business is done. We believe that digitisation will help transform agriculture and other sectors, and fundamentally the way we work, interact and learn. Our Vision is a Continent that is ‘attractive’, ‘transparent’ and ‘worth investing in’. Fundamentally #TheAfricaWeWant, harbouring and expressing #TheTalentWeHave.

Our Mission: to assist our members in developing their enterprise, consolidating their reputation, running a thriving business, excelling in delivering quality services.

Our services: We cater for ‘Premium Members‘ (starting in January 2021), ‘Members‘ and ‘Followers‘ (starting January 2020). Members have to meet a number of eligibility criteria (soon to be published) and pay membership fees. No fee applies to Followers.
