MONROVIA, Montserrado – The Cummings Africa Foundation, a non-profit organization founded by Liberian politician Alexander Cummings and his wife, has announced the hosting of an entrepreneurship summit for small and medium enterprises in Liberia.
The event will take place from November 14 to 15 at the Millennium Guest House in Congo Town. It plans to bring together more than 100 small business owners from around the country for networking, workshops, panel discussions, and social events.
“Whether you are a startup, small business, or innovator looking for what’s next – this summit is for everyone,” the foundation said in a statement.
It also disclosed that a small business pitch competition will give entrepreneurs the opportunity to pitch their ideas to improve or scale their businesses, with contestants getting a chance to win up to US$10,000 in investment capital, which will be provided as grant.
“The Liberian Entrepreneurship Summit was curated with the Liberian entrepreneur in mind. This event promises to ensure that every attendee leaves feeling rejuvenated and equipped with knowledge, resources, and skills that will prove extremely useful in their entrepreneurial journey,” the organizers further noted.
Cummings, who was previously a chief executive at Coca-Cola, will meanwhile serve as keynote speaker for the summit.
