Are you a manager, a company executive, an entrepreneur, an aspiring platform founder or a business student seeking to improve your skills in a rapidly changing business environment where new leadership capabilities are needed?

You might be interested to join DIGITAL AFRICA:  Platform Management, Strategy & Innovation, a 5-week course delivered by the CGE Global Scholars program with support from The Rockefeller Foundation.

This is a practical training in new management concepts and create a community of professionals committed to advancing platform management and innovation for Africa.

I was privileged to be part of the 50 pioneers hand-picked earlier in this year to attend this program which inspired my to write my series of Platforms Business articles.  I also had the opportunity to meet great people with whom I have developed friendship and business partnerships.

This time, I have been appointed by the CGE team to be on the other side to facilitate the learning experience for new students, share my insights, resources and tips to help them make the best out of this opportunity.

You will learn from the leading academic experts in platform business models from prestigious universities such as MIT, Dartmouth College, Columbia Business School and Lagos Business School, collaborate and learn from a diverse group of peers and receive a certificate upon course completion.

This is an opportunity not to be missed. The course starts on Monday 07th November 2016 but applications are accepted until Wednesday 12th October 2016 at 9 pm (ET). Do not leave it to the last minute, read the full description and apply immediately.

Good luck and see you on the other side 🙂
