Mara launches African entrepreneurs into Silicon Valley!!!!!!!


Mara Online is a family of web and mobile platforms that allow users to communicate, interact and collaborate. Sometimes referred to as Africa’s answer to Skype, the May launch of the company saw a chartered jet fly over Silicon Valley with a Mara-branded banner that read, "It’s Time For Africa."


Ashish J. Thakkar, one of 10 Young African Millionaires To Watch and CEO of Uganda’s Mara Group, has launched Mara.com, Africa’s first multi-lingual online portal for youth mentorship and entrepreneurship.

Mara.com is an offshoot project of the Mara Foundation, one of Africa’s largest non-profit social enterprises. Mara Foundation lends support to emerging African entrepreneurs at the forefront of their journey. Mara Online will be the continent’s first online mentorship network, and will connect young, budding African entrepreneurs to established enterprises and businessmen. Ashish J. Thakkar, CEO of the Mara Group, says Mara.com will be a transformational project and will nurture an ecosystem for African entrepreneurs and youth while improving skills and emerging talent.
