Are you an entrepreneur with successful and failed ventures? A venture capitalist looking to help the next wave of businesses? An angel investor who has learned how to invest in small businesses throughout Africa? We invite you to dialogue with us about volunteering as an online mentor? The expectation is simple: share your wisdom online, privately to those you hope to inspire. The rewards are priceless: helping other Africans to create jobs and improve lives across Africa.
Your journey begins by submitting a proposal by April 28th, for free, online mentoring by an entrepreneur or investor in your region. Mentoring begins as soon as our 200 Regional mentors get to your idea but will be complete by beginning of June. Mentors may suggest you explain more or add to your idea to make it more attractive to investors. You will be notified by June 10 if your idea is One of the Most Needed in Your Region and you continue to Round 2 for more mentoring to improve your Pan-African expansion opportunities.
