developing afriaOn September 29th, 2014, the IE Africa club welcomed Mr. Okendo Lewis Gayle, founder of the Harambe Entrepreneur Alliance. Harambe Alliance is a network of highly educated African entrepreneurs from leading universities around the world.

Mr. Gayle spoke extensively about Harambe and the positive milestones it has reached in supporting and mentoring entrepreneurs from Africa. In addition, he highlighted the new partnerships to be entered into with our school, IE, including the possibility of a scholarship and extension of access to internship opportunities for IE African students.

It was indeed a fruitful event, as Harambe´s goals perfectly complemented our clubs vision and created room for future partnerships to the benefit of all. We were all encouraged to drive our entrepreneurship side and register with Harambe to access their wealth of resources and also gain support for our initiatives.

supporting sustainable social entrepreOn October 22, 2014, the IE Africa club hosted Mr. Evans Wadongo, a renowned Social Entrepreneur with a focus on Africa. Mr. Wadongo spoke on ´Innovation and Business Models that effectively work for the bottom billion´.

It was an inspiring session, where he gave us insights into the way his solar lamp idea for people in rural Kenya, morphed into a self sustaining social enterprise that goes beyond providing light to encouraging savings and investments by the poor in rural Kenya. Attendees were able to ask questions and develop business model ideas for their own enterprises. In addition, we had an opportunity to further connect with the speaker at the after-session cocktail.

It was indeed an enlightening experience.
