Bank & Entrepreneur Africa (B&E) has set up #ItsToughEnough – a bold online initiative that harnesses the know-how of world-leading entrepreneurial experts to help Africans build viable businesses.

Anne Agbakoba, Publisher, Bank & Entrepreneur Africa, disclosed this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Thursday in Lagos.

Agbakoba explained that the B&E initiative would make Nigeria vibrant and great by igniting an entrepreneurial boom and increasing the percentage of women entrepreneurs.

“It is also supporting government efforts at becoming a leading economy as well as achieving impressive rankings on both the Global Competitiveness and Human Development Indices,” she said.

Agbakoba said the initiative had partnered some experts and would harness the know-how of these world-leading entrepreneurial experts to encourage willing Africans and Nigerians to run profitable businesses.

She said the experts would share their expertise via virtual knowledge transfer in February 2024.

The entrepreneurial experts include Marc Goldberg, Founder, Marc Goldberg Photography and Precious L. Williams, Founder, Perfect Pitches by Precious.

Renowned photographer Goldberg’s pedigree lists clients including The New Yorker, The Washington Post, LA Times, CNN, People magazine, Stand up to Cancer, Rabobank, AXA, and The New York Genome Center.

Williams is a world-class Speaker and Trainer for global brands like BMW, Google, LinkedIn, Microsoft, Harvard University and Columbia University. She is known for converting conversations into currency.

Agbakoba also said that proceeds from the  registration fee charged to access Marc and Precious’ sessions would go toward developing the B&E MoJo4TheMasses Academy, which trains ladies from disadvantaged communities to become Mobile Journalists (MoJos). (NAN) www.nannews.ng
