African Club of Entrepreneurs

The African Club of Entrepreneurs is a pan-African organization that gathers female and male entrepreneurs who are committed to contributing to a sustainable and responsible development process in Africa. Its mission is to plea the cause of African entrepreneurship and develop business opportunities between and for its members.

 

Why launching this Club?

Since 2012, I&P organizes training seminars, allowing the entrepreneurs to exchange and debate on transversal issues, such as human resources, relations with the banks, management and information systems. Considering the great success of these seminars, I&P and its partner companies are preparing the development of a structured community on the long-term.
