Over the course of going through the 12 weeks training, I have learnt so much so that I began to wonder and ponder; What if I do not get the funding…Can I still start/scale up my business?
It is of no surprise that many on this forum are either alumnus of the TEF programme or participant for the funding. The sincere truth is that we all will not be successful in getting the seed capital not because we do not have brilliant ideas worthy enough of been funded but because the resources are limited. This is not enough obstacle to hinder us from implementing those brilliant ideas of starting up those great businesses we as Africans have conceived as solutions to different problems.
I, therefore, believe if participants of like-interests could come together to form a sort of strategic partnership pulling knowledge, ideas and resources together to start-up businesses, It will also go a long way in achieving our goals, objectives and dreams!!!
I am open to such partnerships… Are you?
