The Global Entrepreneurship Network is excited to announce the opening of a new Startup Huddle chapter in Harare, Zimbabwe to support the growth of the local startup community while crowdsourcing advice and support for its entrepreneurs.
Harare joins a global network of more than 60 Startup Huddle chapters world-wide and will host its first event on November 11, 2021 during Global Entrepreneurship Week, when 40,000 activities will take place in 200 countries to inspire and empower entrepreneurs.
At each Startup Huddle event, local founders give six-minute presentations outlining challenges facing their companies. Each presentation is followed by a 20-minute conversation with an audience of peers, mentors, educators and advisers who provide constructive criticism focused on finding solutions and increasing founder know-how. With new founders cycling through each gathering, and previous presenters joining the audience to give back, the community continues to expand while connections deepen.
