Pan-African law firm Centurion Law Group has launched a business mentorship programme, offering complimentary legal services to selected startups.
Centurion said the initiative was continuing the company’s commitment to training and development, and was designed to support young and innovative entrepreneurs with legal and business advice, including corporate structuring, labor and employment, and tax and customs issues.
The pilot programme will first be made available to businesses in Cameroon, with plans to expand it to other Centurion markets across Africa.
“African entrepreneurs and businesses can only reach their full potential when they are given the right legal support,” said NJ Ayuk, chief executive officer (CEO) of Centurion Law Group.
“The dreams of African startups and entrepreneurs should not be put on hold, slowed, or held back because of the lack of legal support. As a pan-African law firm, we believe we have an obligation to support them and we will provide that support.”
Participants will be provided with advice in areas such as corporate structuring, labour and employment, and tax and customs issues. Entrepreneurs interested in applying can do so on the careers section of the Centurion website.
