IN 2003, I TRAVELED TO SOUTH AFRICA FOR THE FIRST TIME TO IMPLEMENT, WITH THE SUPPORT OF THE CANADIAN INTERNATIONAL DEVELOPMENT AGENCY (CIDA) AND ACCENTURE, THE PROJECT WHICH WOULD LATER BE CALLED ENABLIS. AT THAT TIME, ENABLIS WAS NOTHING MORE THAN A PROTOTYPE FOR A MODEL OF ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT BASED ON JOB CREATION IN DEVELOPING COUNTRIES. I AM PROUD TO SAY THAT ENABLIS IS NOW THE LARGEST ENTREPRENEURIAL NETWORK IN AFRICA. ////////////////////////////////////////// FROM SOUTH AFRICA, IT HAS EXPANDED TO EAST AND WEST AFRICA AND EVEN SOUTH AMERICA. ENABLIS HAS UNDOUBTEDLY SUCCEEDED IN PROVIDING ITS MEMBERS WITH THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATION CAN THRIVE. ))))))))))))<<<<<<))))))))))))<<<<<<))))))))))))<<<<<<))))))))))))<<<<<

ENABLIS IS NOT ONLY A MODEL BUT RATHER A SOLUTION HELPING THOUSANDS OF MEMBER ENTREPRENEURS GROW THEIR BUSINESSES AND CREATE JOBS FROM THE GROUND UP. IT FACILITATES PROFESSIONAL NETWORKING AND MENTORING, ENTREPRENEURIAL SKILLS DEVELOPMENT AND ACCESS TO FINANCE TO ENSURE ECONOMIC STIMULATION AND ENTREPRENEURIAL SUSTAINABILITY. <><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><><> PEOPLE AND JOBS ARE AT THE HEART OF ENABLIS AND THIS IS WHY WE FOCUS ON DEVELOPING THE ENTREPRENEUR, NOT SUPPORTING THE ENTERPRISE. THE AFRICAN EXAMPLE PROVES IT: WHILE HUMANITARIAN ASSISTANCE PROVIDES EMERGENCY RELIEF AND GOVERNMENTS FACILITATE EMPLOYMENT, IT IS UP TO THE BUSINESS SECTOR TO CREATE JOBS. HELPING PROSPEROUS AFRICA IS THE SOLUTION TO ALLEVIATE POVERTY AND BREAK THE CYCLE OF “DONOR MONEY”. IT IS BY BRINGING BACK THE DIGNITY OF RUNNING A BUSINESS, OF CREATING JOBS FOR ONESELF AND FOR OTHERS THAT A NATION CAN BE EMPOWERED TO CHANGE ITS DESTINY. /\/\/\/\/\/\///////////\/\/\/\/\/\///////////\/\/\/\/\/\/

ENABLIS IS ESSENTIALLY A CALL TO ACTION TO ALL THOSE WHO WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS ENABLING ENTREPRENEURS AND REDUCING POVERTY. SPONSORS, PARTNERS, DONORS: THIS IS YOUR CHANCE TO ACHIEVE A COLLECTIVE IMPACT FAR BEYOND YOUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES. JOIN US AS WE ARE TAKING OUR ENTREPRENEUR DEVELOPMENT MODEL TO NEW CONTINENTS WHERE IT WILL BE USED BY GOVERNMENTS, ORGANIZATIONS AND PEOPLE TO CREATE VALUE. ))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) ENABLIS NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT AND I INVITE YOU TO HEAR THIS CALL; WITH YOUR HELP, AS WE EXPAND INTO MORE COUNTRIES IN AFRICA, SOUTH AMERICA AND ASIA, WE WILL PUT MORE ENTREPRENEURS ON THE ROAD TO SUCCESS.
