Infrastructure Is Imperative
As a startup entrepreneur, perhaps you’ve not given it much thought, but infrastructure is vital to your organization’s proper coordination and stable growth. It’s never too early to start planning and implementing the tools and documents necessary to ensure professional performance at an operational level. We’re encouraging local startup entrepreneurs to develop infrastructure that not only serves their organizations, but collaborative utilities that bolster the entire startup ecosystem. This is the knowledge we want to share at the Business Infrastructure Workshop.

Introducing Tim Pubben

Tim Pubben is our most recent visiting fellow who came to us through the Netherlands-based organization, LiveBuild. A business consultant by profession, he’s spent the past month working head-to-head with ActivSpaces entrepreneurs as a business development and strategy advisor. This month, he’s taking point on the Business Infrastructure Workshop to share some new ideas and insights he’s gained during his time in Cameroon.

Program

Business Infrastructure Workshop

Venue: ActivSpaces Buea
Day 1: November 27th | 10:00am – 1:00pm
Day 2: November 28th | 10:00am – 1:00pm
Registration: http://activspaces.eventbrite.com/
The Business Infrastructure Workshop is open for only up to ten startup teams (2 team members per team) so make sure you get your Innovator’s Pass early enough at our Eventbrite page if you would like to participate.

On Day 1, half of the teams will be working on Infrastructural Tools while the other half will be working on Infrastructural Planning. On Day 2, the groups will switch topics and close with presentations.

Participants will leave the workshop with an in-depth understanding of business infrastructure and a business infrastructure toolkit (including their own business model canvas). Tim will also schedule follow-up consulting sessions with interested teams.

The Business Infrastructure Workshop is open to Cameroon-based startups who will be available in Buea for the duration of the program. We’re looking forward to having you join us at ActivSpaces in our continuous journey to foster African innovation.
