Abantu Impact Foundation webinar: entrepreneurial competencies – making African businesses survive and thrive in a pandemic


Compliments of the new year from Abantu Impact Foundation. They are thrilled to invite you to this webinar organised by Abantu Impact Foundation.

Date: 18th of February 2021.


Time: 5 pm (UK time), 6 pm (West African time) and 8 pm (East African and Southern Africa time).


We are particularly pleased to be bringing you a strong line-up of globally esteemed leaders as our guest speakers:


1.        Dr. Justina Mutale, Founder & President, Justina Mutale Foundation for Leadership and African Woman of the Year (2012), and:

2.        Ms. Gugu Ndebele, Executive Director, Executive Director of the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls (OWLAG).

 At the last webinar hosted by Abantu Impact Foundation, they addressed ways in which African SMEs can survive the challenges brought on by COVID-19 and the subsequent lockdown in many countries across the region. There was a recurring interest in addressing the vital competencies that African entrepreneurs need to run successful businesses.  

This webinar is designed to provide a space for discussion, sharing of ideas and sign-posting entrepreneurs on where to start building up their competencies to grow and run thriving businesses. The discussion will be considering the continued impact of COVID-19 on African SMEs. 

The foundation will also use this opportunity to introduce The Abantu COVID-19 Resilience Fund that aims to provide blended financing and support to bolster African SMEs at risk of closing due to the impact of measures taken to combat the spread of the coronavirus.

With limited places available for this conversation, we invite you to RSVP by 1st February 2021. We look forward to receiving your registration before the cut-off date and to warmly welcome you to another global conversation with a focus on African SMEs.
