Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, today announced a partnership with ALN Ventures, a transformational pan-African business accelerator powered by African Leadership Network (ALN).

As part of the partnership, Thomson Reuters will provide entrepreneurs with a range of services including tools and support for industry and competitive analysis, legal information, compliance trends, among other critical tools to support cross-border expansion. ALN Ventures is a platform designed to identify the most promising entrepreneurs in Africa and connect them to the African Leadership Network which is Africa’s most dynamic group of young influencers.

Harish Subramanian, Executive Director of ALN Ventures, said:
“We firmly believe that entrepreneurship, particularly scalable enterprises, is essential to a prosperous, self-sufficient Africa. Within the ALN community, we have a significant pool of experience, capital and know-how that can fundamentally transform the trajectory of entrepreneurs as they look to grow their ventures.”

“To harness this power of the network, we are intensely focused on businesses that have the ambition and the ability to become regional powerhouses. We are pleased to have Thomson Reuters support in this effort and are working to bring the best of their international experience to the entrepreneurs.”

Keith Nichols, Managing Director, Africa, Thomson Reuters, commented:
“Thomson Reuters is committed to empowering economies in Sub Saharan Africa. We are pleased to partner with ALN Ventures to support entrepreneurs across the continent. As part of the partnership, we will provide entrepreneurs with critical insights and crucial information that gives them an advantage in the marketplace.”

African Leadership Network has served as a champion for entrepreneurship in Africa, primarily though the Africa Awards for Entrepreneurship (AAE). ALN Ventures identifies early-stage African entrepreneurs with big ideas and pan-African ambitions.
