TRANSFORMATIONAL BUSINESS NETWORK
Transformational Business Network (TBN) works with driven entrepreneurs and investors seeking to create long-term, meaningful impact within their communities. By shifting the development mindset from aid to enterprise, TBN has been able to create over 1,500 jobs and unlock more than £55 million in investment finance.
Jamma supports Transformational Business Network's (TBN) vision of helping entrepreneurs build impactful businesses and unlock financing. By providing training in key areas such as marketing and financial skills, TBN helps create jobs, relieve poverty, and improve livelihoods in East Africa.
Entrepreneurs can face significant obstacles in creating a successful business; limited access to finance and a lack of business skills or suitable mentors being examples. By advocating with governments and international donors on behalf of entrepreneurs, building business capacity, and connecting purpose-driven enterprises with early-stage finance, TBN provides key support to businesses seeking positive change within their communities.
Working with entrepreneurs and investors to challenge the status quo.
TBN organises summits and alumni events to foster learning, discussion, and connections between entrepreneurs, local and international investors, and NGOs from around the world. Small and medium sized African businesses are given the opportunity to connect with the right investors and take full advantage of their long-term potential.
“We believe in the potential of entrepreneurs to lead with integrity, to scale their businesses exponentially and to create jobs and prosperity for all.” - TBN
Olivelink is a healthcare service provider located within the slums of Nairobi, Kenya, and was first started by Josephine Suleiman in 2013. Olivelink’s mission is to provide affordable and high-quality healthcare services to low-income patients and families in Kenya.
TBN provided mentorship that helped grow Olivelink’s business model and introduced Josephine Suleiman to global investors that enabled financing of a second clinic, allowing families in Nairobi’s Tassia slum access to affordable health care.
Jamma is pleased to support an organisation that is empowering low-income communities by helping impactful businesses grow and develop.
“Young African social entrepreneurs are setting out to change the world, make a profit and, in the process, inspire other young people to take the future into their own hands.” - Reuben Coulter, TBN
