TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR LEARNERS
Before taking the Maaya Entrepreneurship training course, I had a lot of difficulty getting the bet of a cultural entrepreneur in Africa. After two years of training, I have proof of the real possibility of developing a panoply of cultural and multidisciplinary projects in Africa.
I enjoyed the sessions on the structuring of cultural enterprises, as well as the visits to the city of Ségou, then the sharing of practical experiences on the model of the Festival sur le Niger. The principles of Maaya Entrepreneurship have equipped me and fostered my openness to the world. My entrepreneurial and managerial capacities are strengthened; I participate in a lot of collaborations on other continents.
To be successful in the cultural sector, especially in Africa, could appear utopian from an outside perspective. But in reality, it’s a lot more interesting than you might think. You just need to equip yourself with the fundamental methods and values that govern it. Fortunately, Maaya Entrepreneurship is conceptualized to us and efficient in practice. I am proud to learn and apply this model on a daily basis!
Find me, a visionary, and very soon popularizer of the Maaya Entrepreneurship model, this very informative and revealing program that finally opened my eyes to possible scenarios, particularly in the cinematography sector where I have an association. Maaya Entrepreneurship has already changed my work and my personal life in such a positive way. I am more confident in how I use the skills and advice I have learned, with great results almost immediately.
Happy to be the beneficiary of this training in ENGLISH. It created a connection between East Africa and West Africa, as well as between our Francophone and Anglophone cultures and practices. From my experience in the cultural field in Africa, I do not remember having experienced such strong exchanges. The MAAYA ENTREPRENEURIAT model provided by the IKAM is very original and adapted to African realities.
IKAM CONGO has trained around 100 MAAYA Entrepreneurs in Central Africa in just one year. Responding to questions from the creation to the maturation of cultural businesses and products in the African context, the concept is spreading and being adopted because its organizational component increasingly arouses the curiosity of cultural entrepreneurs.
