The truth is that not all entrepreneurs are created equal. When faced with a backwards system with inadequate funding structures, restrictive policies, outdated networks, a huge skills gap and all the red tape around registering a business, you’re nothing less than a hero as an entrepreneur in Africa. In this episode, we shine a light on some of the incredible people who are solving social challenges in Africa through innovative entrepreneurial ideas. As JASIRI and Raymond Ackerman Academy Alumni, they are no strangers to catalysing change with their business ventures. To kick off the podcast, JASIRI staff, Daniel Hampton and Akalisa Keza and JASIRI fellows Peace Iraguha and Brian Simiyu join host, Fergus Turner, to talk about what the initiative is about and how it is making a difference in the continent. In the inspiring positive outlook segment, Kentse Radebe interviews Ayanda Cuba about how enlisting in the Raymond Ackerman Academy transformed his life and inspired him to start his business.
