Young African entrepreneurs have been urged to view private investment as the key to unlocking potentials in Africa.
The recommendation was made by key speakers during the just ended Tony Elumelu entrepreneurship forum which brought together entrepreneurs and thousands of beneficiaries in Abuja Nigeria.
This year’s event focused on “Empowering African Entrepreneurs” with masterclasses, a dynamic pitching competition, electrifying panel debates, and a presidential dialogue. Senior business executives, startup entrepreneurs, development institutions and policymakers were all present.
