SOAS Launches Training Event For African Diaspora Entrepreneurs

Mergers, Acquisitions and Financial Results

The University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) is launching a certification course for young African diaspora entrepreneurs, aimed at honing their abilities to build business links with Africa.

The specialist school announced the event – to be entitled “Young African Diaspora Entrepreneurs – Exploiting Your USP (Unique Selling Proposition)” – inviting registration by young businesspeople of the African diaspora in the UK who are looking to capitalise on their unique link between the UK and the African continent.

The event – which will take place on February 2 – will see expert industry players and successful entrepreneurs hold presentations and workshops aimed at maximising the potential of attendees, and assist in building successful inter-continental businesses.

Topics to be covered include potential sources of funding, concise business planning techniques, weighing the opportunities and downfalls of social enterprise, to name but a few.  The event will also provide plenty of networking time to build connections.

Participants will be awarded with a certificate marking successful completion of the course.
