Annual Growth

Over the last decade, the Springboard Road Show has had the opportunity to interact with over 300,000 young people directly on the roadshow. The Foundation has witnessed alumni from different spheres of life become influential in various sectors of the economy. Alumni span from entrepreneurs to young and senior executives nationwide. Others have also completed various academic programs in their chosen professions.

The Covid-19 pandemic has brought in its wake a need to be digital oriented in any organization’s outlook, therefore for the first time since its inception in 2007, the Roadshow would be a fully virtual event. The theme for the 2021 Roadshow will focus on Repositioning; Reviewing the PAST, Redesigning the PRESENT, and Reimagining the FUTURE. It will be held on a quarterly basis in April, June, September and November. Kindly endeavour to be a part of it when the time is due.

The Future

The opportunity to impact future generations of African entrepreneurs and leaders continues to be a key factor in the growth trajectory of the Foundation.

As a result, the Foundation will partner with relevant stakeholders to develop key programs to engage young entrepreneurs and leaders as they seek to achieve their dreams.  

Underpinning all these will be the continuous emphasis on strong personal values in the quest to raise values-based leaders, committed to building a good society.
