Business Lab Africa Overview



What is BLA

Business Lab Africa is an online business school in Africa. A school targeted at providing practical and relevant knowledge to the African entrepreneurs.

Are you an aspiring entrepreneur or are you turning a side hustle into a major business? Or perhaps, you are trying to improve on your already existing business? Business Lab Africa is the right platform for you to learn business strategies that will help you grow a profitable and meaningful business.

Where does the school take place?
Everything is online, you can access from anywhere in the world with an internet enabled device. You can learn at your pace throughout the month of subscription. All recorded videos, replays of live classes, worksheets etc will be made available in your student area.
What’s the difference between a BLA course and program?

BLA Courses are short series of learnings (usually 1 month) curated to offer diverse business knowledge for entrepreneurs to facilitate their business growth. They are offered monthly at BLA.

BLA Programs are Business Labs developed for key industries and business areas that have a potential to impact Entrepreneurs and drive business growth. An example of a Business Lab is the Realtors Growth Program, powered by Landwey. They are not offered monthly.

How is BLA different from other online schools?

We are genuinely interested in helping entrepreneurs in Africa build a profitable and sustainable business through impactful, affordable, experiential and locally relevant business knowledge. We achieve this in two ways – Courses and Programs.

For Courses, we offer a new course monthly, while for programs, we develop Business Labs for key industries and business areas that have a potential to impact Entrepreneurs and drive business growth. An example of a Business Lab is the Realtors Growth Program, powered by Landwey.

Our courses and programs are delivered through Training Modules (Audio, Video and Text), Templates, Peer to Peer learning and a robust training faculty.

How much time do i need to commit?

Recommended time for learning is 3-5 hours weekly. You can learn at your own pace. Your focus and dedication is all that is needed for BLA, the more your dedication, the greater your expected results. The weekly dedicated time will help you complete your growth assignments, engage with school faculty and other students. The more focus and dedication you put into BLA, the more you’ll get out of it.

You are allowed access to the training once you subscribe, kindly note that if subscription is not re-activated for following months you will loose access to the portal.

Who Is BLA Perfect For?



Who’s right for BLA?

BLA is for startups, freelancers, small business owners, established and aspiring entrepreneurs. We have helped various businesses from various sectors.

The knowledge will help you to take more deliberate steps of starting, nurturing your business efficiently online and offline. More efficiently means with more passion, precision, strategies, implementation etc.

Will BLA work for me if i don’t have a business?
BLA is perfect if you’re just initiating your business idea because it’ll train you to think like an entrepreneur and avoid the costly errors even smart entrepreneurs make when launching their first business.

What additional support will students get?

Once you get the welcome email from our team, you are enveloped in a support system from a team of knowledgeable community members. In addition to the resources and lessons monthly you have access to the:

BLA Team support – We have a dedicated team to provide answers to any pressing questions you might have during your time at BLA. You can reach out to the team via posting comments in the comment section under each lesson and get responses from the team or fellow learners or via email when you email support@businesslabafrica.com during Office hours Monday – Friday from 9am – 5om West African Time. We will resolve the complaint as quickly as we can, mostly within an hour.

BLA Mentors – We have dedicated mentors who are always present in the student area to give guidance, encouragement and feedback during your subscription time with us.

Do students get certificates upon completion?

At BLA you get a badge of completion which is not a certificate.

For now BLA is unaccredited and intentionally so. For long, the focus has been on certifications rather than the practicality of knowledge. We would rather focus on helping you get results.

Think of your certificate as the growth you achieve in your business. But if you require a paper certificate, BLA is not for you.

Can I have my materials for life?

When you pay for a course you have access to the materials for the duration of time paid for.

When you pay for a program you have access to your materials for one year..
