IBM Bangis is back with yet another instalment of his spoken words videos. He went out the spotlight after releasing ‘Better Tomorrow’, a project which focused on giving hope to the hopeless. This new video is titled ‘LITTLE ONES’ and it stems around the poor upbringing of children mostly practised in this part of the world and how parent should try their possible best to see they keep up their appearances when it comes to the growth of their child.  This project is totally different from his previous ones because he diverted the core theme from his usual business motivation to the most common problem been faced in most families. He was quoted saying ‘I want to change the world in whatever little way I can and right now the only way I see fit is to address the issue of wrong upbringing of children around the world’. This project will blow your mind as he was reported to have taken his time and done a good research before penning his words down. Here is the lyrics and after which the vi…


Goal setting is probably one of the hardest things marketers have to do. You've got to choose a goal that's lofty, but not too lofty. And it's possible you have no idea what "lofty" is anyway -- for marketers implementing brand new activities, picking the right goals (and then tackling them) can feel like a guessing game.

The hopes of the several tens of thousands who graduate from our various educational institutions each year are dashed due to the limited employment opportunities in the public sector. In order to provide alternative opportunities for the graduates and others who are willing to venture into their own businesses, government continue to provide the requisite support and incentives needed to help them find their feet. One such opportunity is the Presidential Pitch Programme which on Monday supported 10 business start-ups owned by young entrepreneurs, under the age of 35, with a total amount of GH¢350,000 . In addition to the capital funding, the start-ups would be supported through business incubation hubs and mentorship programmes to enable them succeed. The 10 entrepreneurs came top after an initial screening of 2,000 applications during which they presented their business ideas, ranging from agro-processing and agribusiness, technology, greenhouse projects, housing and construction, …


The French government has signed a development finance agreement with Tony Elumelu Foundation, TEF, for development finance and entrepreneurship in Africa.
The agreement worth one billion Euros was executed yesterday in Lagos at the instance of the French President, Emmanuel Macron, who announced the deal yesterday during a talk show with nearly 2,000 TEF alumni during an exclusive interactive session. TEF set aside $100 million in 2015 for an entrepreneurship programme to train, mentor and fund 10,000 young entrepreneurs across Africa by 2024.
The session was hosted and moderated by the founder of TEF, Mr Tony Elumelu, principally to give the Foundation’s entrepreneurs a platform to closely engage Macron and learn from his experience as one of the youngest Heads of State in recent times while networking and forging partnerships with French and African business leaders and policymakers in attendance. Announcing the deal Macron had said the program was aimed at building on the current a…


Is your business performing below par? Are you considering selling it off and starting another or perhaps, becoming an employee? If so, you’re on the right page. According to Bloomberg, 8 out of 10 entrepreneurs who start a business fail within the first 18 months. Perhaps you’re among the 8 and now, you’re considering plan B.
One of the major reasons why entrepreneurs sell off their business is definitely when the output is below expectation. If the output is smaller compared to the input, a reasonable entrepreneur will definitely seek for the next line of action, which is to either allow the business to be acquired by another or perhaps, merge with a bigger firm. In this article, I’m going to guide you, to know when to sell your business and how to sell it. Pay attention, you don’t want to make a mistake you will live to regret. KNOW WHEN TO SELL YOUR BUSINESSMost entrepreneurs don’t sell their business because of financial desperation or issues, sometimes, it’s to seek for other oppor…


Starting a business young means you have time on your side, and that’s one of the most positive things to take from this. As a potential young entrepreneur, you can develop your ideas whilst studying, and you shouldn’t want to become a millionaire overnight. We believe it’s never a bad idea to think about starting your own business. You might think you’re too young; however, if you’re a driven, passionate and responsible person, entrepreneurship might just be for you. Starting your business could be a great way to make money on the side, or over the summer. There are more opportunities for you to consider than ever before.Most people who start businesses are not as young as you might think. It doesn’t hurt you to get started on your own enterprise at a younger age. In fact, it might help. Some benefits of starting early are: • You stand out–if you are young, you stand out from the crowd, and people will remember that about you. People tend to remember kids doing amazing things that even …


My dad used to say, "No one ever got rich working for someone else." Then, he'd pack up his lunch, put on his boots and go to work -- for someone else. He did this because he felt he had a responsibility to his family, and I deeply respect that commitment; but my parents wanted more for me. In their minds, that meant a college education -- something that's long been touted as a lever to social and financial mobility. A February 2018 report by RTI International backs that idea. After comparing the salaries and rates of first-generation college graduates with those whose parents attended at least some college, RTI's researchers found the results statistically identical. So, off to college I went. As the first person in my family to earn a bachelor's (and master's) degree, I can say definitively that education has been an indispensable tool to my becoming a successful entrepreneur.  Yet I would say the same about my working-class background. After all, what sepa…
