The E4Impact Alumni community does not stop growing, networking, connecting and after the launch of the Alumni Business Network in Ghana, the Zimbabwean Alumni were called to officially celebrate the establishment of the new E4Impact Alumni Association in Zimbabwe.
The launch event took place on November 23, 2022 at the Catholic University of Zimbabwe in Harare. The occasion was graced by the University’s Vice Chancellor, Dr Ranga Zinyemba, and Frank Cinque, Managing Director of the E4Impact Foundation, and saw the participation of more than 40 people.
The event was a special opportunity to reunite E4Impact entrepreneurs, who undertook their academic and business path within the Foundation and to share the opportunities and services especially designed to support their continuous business growth and impact.
E4Impact with the Catholic University of Zimbabwe – CUZ offers in fact a unique Global MBA in Impact Entrepreneurship to provide active and aspiring Zimbabwean entrepreneurs with results-oriented education, coaching, and interaction with the local business community and potential investors. Through this programme, E4Impact and CUZ trained more than 80 active entrepreneurs and have run 4 MBA editions, of which 2 are ongoing. The V MBA edition is set to start in February 2023 to train more entrepreneurs and future E4Impact Alumni.
The activities of the new-born Association will be guided by its Executive Committee, ready to start this experience together with its proud members.
Frank Cinque, who attended the event to celebrate and support the Association’s launch, focused on the importance to join forces at local level, as the Zimbabwean entrepreneurs are in control of their social and economic context better than anybody else. Therefore, the Association has to be the special and inclusive space where to interact, to share and exploit opportunities to make significant business and social impact. The event was also a chance to emphasize the potential of the new E4Impact B2B Platform, designed to both connect all E4Impact entrepreneurs and let them access exclusive business connections with local and overseas markets.
Bertha Ndlovu, Southern Africa Area Manager of E4Impact, who greatly supported and contributed to the launch of the new Association, warmly welcomed the audience wishing an intense and fruitful business networking journey.
To confirm the vibrant spirit of this new network, the launch event was soon followed by the first networking event organized by the Alumni Association.
The event, held on 10 December, 2022, was a special chance to interact once again, share ideas and experiences and meet Giacomo Ciambotti, Assistant Professor of Financial Planning in the E4Impact MBAs in Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Etiopia, Zimbabwe and Sudan.
