SFAN Breakfast Meeting, previously known as Future Executives Business Breakfast Meeting, was established to provide a space for millennial entrepreneurs to spark meaningful conversations with like-minded individuals in an unprecedented setting and at non-prohibitive costs.
In five EPIC meetings, the breakfast has seen more than 400 guests gather to share pertinent business insights, with 15 unique business opportunities presented. SFAN Breakfast has become the go-to event for upwardly-mobile millennials looking to access new opportunities and discuss real business concepts, startup tactics and growth strategies with thought leaders.
For this 6th edition themed financial intelligence for millennial entrepreneurs, we shall explore the future of money, discuss best practices to creatively manage and grow your personal finance, insider secrets for venture capital funding, and further review the new tax landscape in Ghana.
The digital marketplace is brimming with talent nowadays. SFAN Breakfast gives you a premier platform to further develop your Subject Matter Expertise and become the top of mind in your field. Collaborating with us can also help you obtain actionable data, exclusive insights, and partnership leads for corporate transformation and market leadership.
When it comes to 10X growth, successful entrepreneurs focus on the who and not the how. SFAN Breakfast is THE ONLY millennial-focused breakfast meeting in Ghana where business-minded millennials at various career stages meet to engage in meaningful conversations and higher-level networking. Join globally-minded individuals and expand your social capital!
For us, SFAN is a testament to the tenacious spirit of a young entrepreneur who picked up his disappointments in a system that could not empower its young creators, repackaged them and built an organization to fill an incredibly important gap in the social ladder. With tenacity, excellence, and pragmatism at its core.
I can’t possibly say enough how proud I am of SFAN. They know how to shake things up and I will gladly recommend their events to any upwardly mobile millennial!
I had the opportunity to attend SFAN Breakfast Meeting in 2016. It was a very well-planned and informative session. The panelists on branding had really great insights and I left there thinking about some of the points raised. I don’t doubt other attendees took a lot from it as well. The pitches were great a good way to know about cool initiatives.
This company is exactly what the youth needs. SFAN events always exceed their promises. The content of our last digital marketing event was exceptional. We talked about digital Now and what can be expected in the future. That should be the task of events, to push the envelop and help attendees grow. I love working with The SFAN team because they simply get it!
