Africa-Press – Botswana. A select few beneficiaries of the Forbes Under 30 Summit Africa shared their testimonials to encourage young entrepreneurs and change-makers looking to make the cut for this year’s meeting.

Scheduled from May 5 to 8, the third cycle of the Summit returns to Gaborone and will feature speakers including government officials, venture capitalists, chief executive officers and celebrities.

From the first cohort that made the 2022 cut, Mr Kedumetse Liphi who is the founder and chief engineer of an innovation-driven enterprise based in Botswana called KedLiphi said the networking opportunity alone was extraordinary as he had the chance to connect with fellow entrepreneurs, investors and industry leaders who equally shared a passion for developing Africa and the world at large.

“Connections have opened doors to potential collaborations, partnerships and even funding opportunities that have propelled KedLiphi to new heights,” he said about his business that specialises in electronics engineering, innovations and military technologies.

He said being among international innovators and entrepreneurs motivated and encouraged him to work hard in developing himself and his company.

He spoke highly of the knowledge-sharing sessions and panel discussions saying they have also been incredibly insightful, providing him with valuable insights into the latest trends and strategies shaping the industry.

Mr Liphi encouraged youth to join this year’s edition of the Forbes Under 30 Summit to connect and make a change for African innovation and beyond.

Mr Goabaone Mogwe, a story-telling artist in Botswana who works with clients from across the world said he met incredible people through the Forbes Under 30 platform who came into the country as young millionaires from across the globe.

In comparison to why such young brilliant minds were successful at what they did, he said, he learnt they had a better conducive environment because of the mindset approach their countries have.

He said this demonstrated why at national level Botswana had to embrace a mindset approach initiative led by President Dr Masisi and realise its potential.

Mr Mogwe said he realised that there was a need for local entrepreneurs to persevere, citing that sometimes an opportunity would present itself once and provide an opportunity to see it through.

“You have to be patient, persevere and wait on that because business is a mixture of opportunity, craft and luck,” he said.

“After the summit, I got renewed with a sense of purpose and a clear vision for the future.”

Meanwhile, a statement from the Ministry of Entrepreneurship states that Nick Cannon, Multi-Hyphen Entertainer & Entrepreneur will headline the event, which is set to focus on investment and entrepreneurship across the continent.

The statement adds: “Africa holds one of the world’s greatest markets for growth, making it ripe for catalysing entrepreneurial capitalism.

Forbes Under 30 Summit Africa 2024 will not only provide attendees with an immersive cultural experience but also shine light on the greatest business stories and biggest opportunities, as well as those who are forging new paths forward.”

Forbes has confirmed an impressive and dynamic docket of speakers, all bringing unique backgrounds and experiences in the African and global entrepreneurial landscape. Conversations will focus on Africa’s economic transformation and biggest investment opportunities, the statement added.
