Mentors

Konnect

MentorsKonnect is our way of supporting the entrepreneurial ecosystem with experienced and certified mentors. With a database of over 200 skilled mentors, we partner with multiple organizations to provide mentors for their innovators while researching on best mentorship practices for African innovators

Over the past few years, as part of some of our programs, we have been providing mentorship to idea stage and young businesses to help them navigate the entrepreneurial journey successfully. We are excited to now formalize this network of mentors under our new flagship program.

MentorsKonnect, with the goal of continually providing mentorship support to African entrepreneurs across the continent.

 

Our pilot mentored 50 participants of the Mosi Oa Tunya program in collaboration with Jacaranda Hub, Zambia which is supported by AfriLabs, AFD, and the Digital Africa Initiative.
