Watch and re-watch any time.

BENEFIT #3: Group mentor-ship and success coaching (Live & video)

If you have not figured out how exactly you want to make money in Africa, or you need local partners and reliable suppliers for your start-up you will be pleased to hear that the Academy provides support and real engagement for that, too. You will get direct access to our network of businesses and partnership opportunities in Africa through our live webinars or personal e-mail introduction.

Benefit #5: Massive Networking

{VALUE - Priceless}

Sometimes when we visit events we come home with a stuck of business cards, but it can be difficult to keep those contacts going - but when you are part of a committed membership network those contacts are there to stay! An important part of our Africa Business Academy is to build business relationships among our respected members and with entrepreneurs and business leaders on the continent. We will be able to share our resources, skills, and connections with each other, provide comradeship and support and generally build good business relationships, which are there to last beyond our Academy.

BENEFIT #6: Get access to our Joint Investment Group

{Value - Priceless}

Some ABA members are also interested in investing their money in existing companies in Africa. We are currently working on establishing our own Joint Investment Group with the help of professional investment advisers. We will start with a group investment in a pineapple farm in Ghana with great returns. A valuable opportunity to get used to investing your money if you are serious about wealth creation.

Testimonials By Our Trainees

Honore Cyubahiro, Canada

“9 months ago when I joined this group [Africa Business Academy] I had a burning desire to start a business like all of you. But deep inside me I was insecure, I had no business background, negative self talk, fear etc... so many times I wanted to quit. Until I started to change my beliefs and took action. What I thought was almost impossible a few months ago now is possible. Yes, I started my import business . And I can't believe that I have already made some sales. I am aware that this is only the beginning but I am now also convinced there is no limitation except those we put in our minds.”

Natasha Harris, USA

Banking Manager

"I began my "African Business" journey with Dr. Harnet. Soon after joining the African Business Academy, I settled on my business model and the best location for my business. Dr. Harnet mapped out the MASSIVE action steps I needed to take to position myself in my industry of choice. The decision to start an African business was one of the best decisions of my life. Dr. Harnet has amazing skills and knowledge on how to do business the "right way" in Africa. I highly recommend working with Dr. Harnet if you are serious about starting an African business and want to minimize your risk. Dr. Harnet is extremely passionate about Africa's future and as long as you follow her road map and follow her coaching advise you will succeed!!!"

Simshindo Msola, USA 

Simply put, joining the African Business Academy (ABA) is the best investment that any serious entrepreneur/investor interested in doing business in Africa can make. Since I have joined the ABA, Dr. Harnet has done a masterful job of helping me focus my ambitions, providing me with invaluable feedback and critique, as well as the right business leads and contacts. Dr. Harnet possesses the rare combination of an extremely personable disposition and unrivaled professionalism, expertise and responsiveness. I cannot overstate the amount of credit that I give her and the ABA for setting me on the most focused path to my business ambitions. If that were not enough, the ABA has a wonderful mix of members at various points in their business journeys, who are extremely welcoming, helpful and insightful in their own right.

Glenn Wilson, USA

Senior ICT Expert 

"Before I joined the Africa Business Academy I was not sure of what I wanted to do other than connect with Africa and start a business. Dr. Harnet has a unique methodology and understanding of how to help you to practically and pragmatically get started or even how to expand your existing business into the lucrative African markets. I know I would not have come this far on my path - now owning my own African business - if I had not met Dr. Harnet and become a member of the ABA. Also, an added benefit of being in the Academy is the chance to interact with other entrepreneurs who have the same ambitions. Joining the Africa Business Academy as a member is without a doubt a very sound business decision I made."
