As we begin to recover from the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, one thing is certain - more people will become entrepreneurs. The economic recovery of the world and Africa will depend on these people succeeding. That success requires a different mentality - one that understands how the streets operate. This course breaks down the hustle, gives local case studies and the much needed lessons to start up, beat your competition, make profits and grow your business.
