The Association of African Startups, a preeminent Pan-African organization dedicated to educating African entrepreneurs and providing them with the tools they need to build successful businesses, has opened its Business Institute.
The kick-off took place on the 18th of June, 2023 at the Association of African Startups Tech Summit.
The Association of African Startups Business Institute (TAAS Business Institute) is a user-friendly tech platform that gives African entrepreneurs and those in the diaspora access to 50 courses that are packaged for convenience and that would help businesses adapt.
These courses have been created to help both existing entrepreneurs and potential entrepreneurs to scale their businesses and penetrate new markets within the continents and other parts of the world.
The institution gives rooms to entrepreneurs to gain access to 12-week intensive learning and development sessions with academia with over 30 years of experience.
Speaking on the development, Mrs Just Omomo Ibe, the founder and President of the Association of African Startups said the launch was a step towards uniting Africa’s five regions.
“We are pleased to finally launch the Association of African Startups Business Institute. This is a huge feat for us to bring to life a one-of-a-kind virtual training institute relevant to the regions of Africa and the diaspora. The goal is to train and equip and 10,000 entrepreneurs across the 5 regions.
“The Association of African Startups business Institute was designed for each of these entrepreneurs having access to 12 weeks of intensive learning and development sessions.
“Over the years, there has been a growing gap in which entrepreneurs lack the requisite skills and resources needed to grow their business.
“We believe with this new feat; we are strategically and deliberately creating a pool of entrepreneurs whose businesses will stand and surpass the 5 years mark of entrepreneurs within the continent,” she said.
She added, “Join us to make our strategic objective achievable by partnering with us to reach 10,000 entrepreneurs across the 5 regions.”
