New York (TADIAS) – This month, the pan-African media company Face2face Africa will host an event in New York honoring “Outstanding Achievement in Entrepreneurship” from the African continent. Among those to be recognized with an award include Bethlehem Tilahun Alemu, Founder and CEO of Ethiopian shoe company SoleRebels, a Sudanese-British mobile communications entrepreneur and billionaire Dr Mohamed “Mo” Ibrahim, South Sudanese British model and designer Alek Wek, and Nigerian Afrobeat pioneer Femi Kuti.

Face2face Africa Founder Isaac Boateng stated in a press release that his media venture is “committed to bringing quality programs” that highlight “the ingenuity” of the pan-African community. “From the young visionaries who are introducing innovative solutions to long-standing challenges, to the icons who have broken down barriers and made it possible for others to dream, we are committed to telling their phenomenal stories and honoring their contributions,” he said.

In a statement the Ethiopian honoree Bethlehem — who also recently launched a luxury leather goods company Republic of Leather — said she was “elated” by the recognition. “I feel deeply honored and excited to receive this award,” she shared. “It’s even more exciting to be in the company of my incredible fellow honorees.” Bethlehem added: “I salute my fellow awardees…It’s a dream to stand beside them.”

The award ceremony is set to take place on Saturday, July 26th at NYU’s Skirball Center for the Performing Arts.
