We are here, seated at the table, ready to do the work. Despite the [aforementioned] potential doubts and challenges, we feel this program is overall a great opportunity for entrepreneurs to take their businesses to the next level. We are grateful to be able to live in a country where the government has stepped in to identify this as an issue that needs to be addressed and to be part of those conversations. The CEO of Made by Africans, an eCommerce platform for African vendors all over the world, Ejibola Adetokunbo-Taiwo is dedicated to shining a light on those business owners and artists who may not otherwise have reach outside their own communities. “I believe that entrepreneurship drives economic growth, and economic growth drives global impact and global impact makes the world a better place,” Adetokunbo-Taiwo says, explaining that when Black businesses grow and have a platform, they inspire young entrepreneurs of colour everywhere. She adds: “By empowering local African brands who would normally operate their business within their country to scale on a global level, my company broadens their sales scopes, enlarges their customer bases and raises their sales revenues.
