“A person who sees a problem is a human being; a person who finds a solution is a visionary; and the person who goes out and does something about it is an entrepreneur”—Naveen Jain, Indian Businessman
BusinessIQ Philanthropy, an initiative of BusinessIQ Africa, is a non-profit organisation. It focuses on the distribution of BusinessIQ entrepreneurship and empowerment magazine in public secondary schools across Africa to foster entrepreneurship and leadership in the next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders.
The initiative was conceived on the 28th of July 2018 by Alfred Ade-Ijimakinwa, the Founder of BusinessIQ Africa. He believes that the next generation of entrepreneurs and leaders in Africa must be consciously inspired and empowered positively through publications (books and magazines) or mentorship. This ideology led to the birth of BusinessIQ Philanthropy.
Why BusinessIQ Philanthropy?
We know that the financial crunch of 2008/09 led to foreclosure and unemployment. This tragedy became the window opportunity that led to the birth of thousands of entrepreneurs. However, most of these entrepreneurs are not equipped with the technical knowhow required to run successful businesses. To bridge the knowledge gap was the reason why Alfred Ade-Ijimakinwa founded BusinessIQ magazine, the Pan African magazine for entrepreneurs.
However, the BusinessIQ Philanthropy was not conceived until the 28th of July, 2018 when the founder, Alfred Ade-Ijimakinwa deemed it necessary to give an aspiring entrepreneur some financial support to complete his diploma program in Cakes and Catering.
BusinessIQ Philanthropy initiative supports young entrepreneurs with innovative business ideas that can positively affect our economy, the source of livelihood and living standard of the entrepreneurs, and create jobs for others.
