January 1, 2011 when it launched the Afripreneur idea.
The new online community was created due to the demand by various group members for more specific groupings based on their interest and focus, greater structured access to old content as to make it retrieveable, greater freedom beyond the restrictions experienced, more recognition for contributing members, etc which we have addressed in this new community called the social network for entrepreneurs .
It features a landing page which opens freely to any visitor but new users must log-in to interact with members of the community. New users can choose to fill our normal login or use a fastrack login using the Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin or Google+ buttons provided.
It features various industry groups and new users are also free to create groups of interest if they don't find any group that suites their interest and taste.
The great thing about the Afripreneur online community is that it allows entrepreneurs to interact in various industry groups creating a form of online networking, mentoring, support and collaboration that we belief will create superb and positive changes in the lives and businesses that choose to use and experience the groups. It also allows individuals have personal pages that shows the entrepreneur in them, a contact list of friends, partners & business acquaintances, etc.
The Afripreneur community provides an almost facebook look makes it easy for new users to find their way around without much education as well as get familiar to some of the features integrated within that are different from what is obtainable on other social media channels.
