Asktoks.com receives funding from AfricSearch for their work with children with neurodevelopmental disorders in Nigeria. Executive President, Didier Acouetey scouted the young entrepreneur at the Africa 2.0 Leadership Symposium in Maputo, Mozambique last week. The funding is set to facilitate the growth of the business in order that more young Nigerians become trained and certified to work with children with neurodevelopmental disorders.
The leadership symposium began with an opening cocktail evening to welcome delegates from far and wide and continued with a speech from the former president of Mozambique His Excellency Joaquim Chissano. Africa 2.0 founder Mamadou Toure also spoke and set the tone for the rest of the conference.
Seasoned entrepreneurs including Chinelo Anohu-Amazu Director General of the Pension Commission of Nigeria (PENCOM), Thomas Konditi CEO GE Transportation, Patrick Parring founder & CEO Parequity, and Adam Tolnay CEO Horizon Ivy were among the speakers, panelists and mentors present. Young minds fresh with raw talent and ideas for start-ups, Africa 2.0 members as well as members of the public from around the world gathered to share, collaborate and learn from each other for the accelerated growth of the African continent.
The three day conference closed with the announcement of the donation to asktoks.com, dinner at a local restaurant and late night dancing for all, in true Maputo style.
