"I first had a chat with Conor Flynn in April 2018 when he was still consulting for Startup Commons, and a few weeks later, he presented me with Social Sector Network. Conor is a really charismatic guy bubbling with energy and eager to impact knowledge and the startup communities. Social sector network inspires me everyday as I thrive to build a better and more sustainable startup/entrepreneurship ecosystem in Africa.

Social Sector Network has a great program for anyone with an entrepreneurial spirit. The online courses are just so incredible especially when starting a business and I am very much counting on these courses as I embark on a journey to help 25 young entrepreneurs."

- Mckevin Ayaba, CEO at Setup A Startup, CEO & Founder of SASAwards
