Over the past few months, our Management team had the privilege of taking part in a very transformational entrepreneurship programme. We got to ask ourselves several key questions that are already changing the course of how we do business at Mesozi; in line with strategy, leadership, impact, operations and our market/industry.
Do you have a scalable business model? Do you have a clear roadmap how to grow your market? Do you have a plan how to extend your product or service portfolio? How do you recruit and retain the right people? Do you have processes and procedures in place? Do you know what product to offer to which customer at what price? Do you have a clear and consistent value proposition?
At Mesozi, we are committed to the development of the Youth and Entrepreneurship in the continent. We regard entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship in high esteem as a driver of change, development and progress. Entrepreneurs build businesses that create value, employment opportunities and deliver crucial services and products where it is needed most. We believe in entrepreneurs being the silent motor of our economy, and for this reason, we will be sponsoring one youth-run(18-28 years) business for the Hubcubation Cohort 3 (Begins 19th August 2016), an entrepreneurial programme by a known provider, The Hub East Africa.

“Hubcubation offered mind-blowing insights on taking my business to the next level. It is my honour and privilege to give the same opportunity to someone else; I mean, its the least we can do as a company to inspire African treps like ourselves in the quest to grow and scale into sustainable enterprises.”
