We are just 3 days away from our 10th anniversary! On May 27th, we will be celebrating a decade of impactful innovation and entrepreneurial growth. In honour of this milestone, some of our partners have been sharing their experiences supporting our work in the last decade. Visit our YouTube channel to know what our partners have to say.

We successfully hosted our first Twitter spaces with our co-founder and Director of entrepreneurship, Simunza Muyangana. We had a chat about how Zambian entrepreneurs can be supported and some entrepreneurs also shared their experiences building their businesses. Thank you for tuning into our spaces, follow us on Twitter to give your suggestion on what topics you would like us to address.

This Friday, we will release Episode 8 of the BongoHive Podcast. In this episode, we look at creating a Green Economy for Africa through the Integration of Sustainable Business Practices. Our guests will walk us through the benefits of green integration to business owners and society, and how to make these practices cost-effective.

That is all from us this week. H
ave a great week, and stay safe.
