In a well-received Harvard Business Review article – Can African Tech Startups Succeed in a World Dominated by Facebook and Google? – I provided ways startups could compete in the age of Google and Facebook. The fact is this: every business is local even in the age of the internet. Yes, I do take time to thank companies which join our Tekedia Mini-MBA, and many appreciate that.
Typically, many founders and CEOs will write “Thanks for the mention”. For us, you can automate delivery of business education from Silicon Valley but we are confident that you may not even know the companies to thank them at Tekedia.com and LinkedIn. Because we do that, we think we are adding a marginal appreciation besides the value in the “classroom”.
