“African entrepreneurs and businesses can only reach their full potential when they are given the right legal support,” said NJ Ayuk, CEO of Centurion Law Group. “The dreams of African start-ups and entrepreneurs should not be put on hold, slowed, or held back because of the lack of legal support. As a pan-African law firm, we believe we have an obligation to support them and we will provide that support.”

The programme is designed for entrepreneurs who want to know how to launch a successful company and navigate the legal and business environment of African markets.

Participants in the programme will be provided with advice in such areas as corporate structuring, labour and employment, and tax and customs issues. Eligible applicants can download an application form from the careers section of the Centurion website. They should send the filled application form and a cover letter detailing their interest in the programme to [email protected].
