Our Goals​

Empower Millions of MSMEs to Grow​

By sharing skills, knowledge, and wisdom from experienced entrepreneurs to upcoming businesses.

Build an Online Community ​

Build and groom the largest community of MSME owners who come together to exchange knowledge, ideas, information and the wisdom needed to develop the sector.

Create Jobs and Income ​

When businesses grow, they employ more people and the economy grows. We want more MSMEs to not just survive, but thrive and accelerate the growth of Africa. Also, this platform will create jobs for thousands along the Digital Learning Value Chain which is measurable.

Teach and Earn​

If you have some knowledge and wisdom to share, a business owner out there is waiting to learn. Become an instructor today.​

Support Government Interventions​

An economy thrives on successful MSMEs. From taxes, to pension, insurance and more, the Government revenue base will increase and interventions can be better managed. ​
