#Africa Orange launches support platform for African entrepreneurs


Mobile operator Orange has launched the Entrepreneur Club, an online providing entrepreneurs in Africa and the Middle East with a variety of forms of support.

Orange said the Entrepreneur Club connected entrepreneurs with a variety of instruments from Orange that support entrepreneurship, while also providing practical information and tools for company creation.

The company said entrepreneurs in Africa and the Middle East are contributing to their countries’ development and reputation, with Orange collaborating with them on a daily basis by giving them access to quality voice and data services.

The Entrepreneur Club platform aims to redirect the entrepreneur towards ecosystem instruments suited to their situation. For example, entrepreneurs can find pertinent information on numerous aspects of their business, including the legal environment, how-to sheets, best practices, tips and videos.

Entrepreneurs looking to use the platform must respond to a variety of questions, after which they can connect with experienced entrepreneurs from Africa and the Middle East to talk about the problems they have encountered and what they do to overcome them. Specialised journalists and lawyers will contribute technical articles and practical advice in easy-to-understand language.

Orange runs a number of competitions each year aimed at African startups, and also has an investment vehicle – Orange Digital Ventures – that invests in African startups.
