Ivy Yayra Tessu

My name is Ivy Yayra Tessu. I am the Founder/CEO of Verdant Global Business Solutions Ltd. Verdant Global is one of the startups that participated in Africa Entrepreneur Conference 2018. Before the conference, I was confused because things were not going the way I expected and was almost giving up. At the conference, I realized that failure is part of the life of an entrepreneur. I also realized I was doing so many things the wrong way that was how come my business was suffering. After the conference, I put all I heard into practice and by God’s grace my business has come back to life.

Before the conference, I was shy advertising on social media. Now, I am using all the social media platforms to advertise my company. But for this conference, I would have closed my company and take my CV out looking for a job.

I want to thank the host and the knowledgeable facilitators for helping bring my company to life. God bless you.

I encourage more startups to attend the Afripreneur Conference 2019. We at Verdant Global cannot wait to participate in the 2019 edition. See you!
