In a bold move inspired by a collective vision to change the African narrative, #ECAfrica100 which launched at the end of 2018 kick starts a journey to profile100 Entrepreneurs within 100 days with a formidable partnership with Africa Business Radio.

As a multi-platform digital business radio and a podcast network, Africa Business Radio provides news insights and analysis of the Africa Business Landscape across 55 AU member states with a global reach of over half a million and is fast making impact across digital platforms as a vital producer and aggregator for African business contents, from emerging startup to macroeconomic stories.


Demonstrating the power of collaboration, the digital platform is throwing its weight to support a new Pan African Entrepreneurship movement; Entrepreneur Connect Africa is a movement determined to scale and profile African Entrepreneurship across multisector, driving collaborations among entrepreneurs across several countries in Africa.


This partnership with JT Communication Solutions paves the way for a new and highly relevant narrative on how African Entrepreneurs are creating sustainable business models impacting economies, stimulating job creation and offering social impact solutions.
