One of the special benefits you get from writing in the Harvard Business Review is that most people read you, from the United States to the UK, from Nigeria to Brazil, and beyond. As the world’s finest business journal, HBR is the compass men and women use to navigate the waters of markets. So, through that network, I get to speak with many people – bank leaders, partners in investment firms, CEOs of leading companies, etc. It remains a moment.
One thing which has become evident here is that many emerging business leaders, in Africa, are looking for mentors. So, I reached out to executives and business leaders in corporate America, to make themselves available to mentor people in the home continent.
Tekedia Institute will place CEOs, founders or leaders of companies which join Tekedia Mini-MBA in the next edition (up to 50 companies) to mentors within corporate America. These mentors include Vice Presidents in JP Morgan, Managing Director in State Street, Directors in Microsoft, etc. The goal is simple: build systems to nurture generational business leaders in Africa. The mentoring will last for one year and we are confident that through the process, the emerging leaders will learn and possibly implement new things in their companies.
Once you finish with our team, you will get access to review the mentors and once a match is made, you will begin the process. You will thrive and build category-king companies, and we are confident that Tekedia Institute will be part of your story.
We are building a meaningful school for the world. In our class yesterday, a member spoke from Saudi Arabia; a few days earlier, another told our Beijing-based faculty that she was connecting from a village in China! We invite you to explore our Institute here.---
