Africapitalism in the Global Entrepreneurship Congress spotlight

16 March 2017 10:12 AM

Entrepreneurs and investors are discussing what African entrepreneurs need to do to thrive at the GEC in Sandton.

Africapitalism is a economic philosophy that the African private sector across 54 countries must play a critical role in the economic transformation and development of Africa.

Tony Elumelu Foundation CEO, Parminder Vir, says African businesses have grown dependent on government for job creation and now it is time for them to play a central role.
