Yesterday I was privileged to address the crowd gathered at the 2018 Global Citizen Festival: Mandela 100 in Johannesburg and announce our commitment to educate 100,000 more entrepreneurs across Africa.
It was fitting that this year’s festival also marked what would have been Nelson Mandela’s 100th birthday.

Whether it’s your favorite coffeemaker or your always-dependable vacuum cleaner, you’re likely to find that the manufacturer stopped making the part, never made the part or it costs more to replace the part than it would to buy a new device.
