GrowthAfrica alumni is a forum that brings together entrepreneurs who have undergone programmes training and support from GrowthAfrica. This quarterly event presents an opportunity for alumni to network, share experiences, achievements, opportunities, challenges and together brainstorm on possible solutions.  Through the forum, several partnerships have been established amongst the alumni.

The third quarter alumni forum themed “power of partnerships” was power packed with testimonials of how businesses have thrived through partnerships. The climax of the discussion was a sharing led by David Kuria, Founder of Ecotact and Africaqua. See link David Kuria emphasised on how to forge strategic partnerships, lessons learnt and what to watch out in a partnership.

In the spirit of partnership was a presentation from Microsoft Biz4Afrika marketing team. Biz4Afrika hopes to create a vibrant online business community amongst listed SME’s, providing them with the opportunity to trade with similar sized businesses through the portal’s online directory, thereby accelerating their individual growth.
