Consider it or go away it, Africa is a wonderful continent. It is my beloved continent with an approximated inhabitants of 1.216 billion persons.
There are about 7 billion folks with distinctive abilities, abilities, know-how, and knowledge. God bless humanity.
So, if you think of the correct marketplace to provide your products or companies, come to Africa.
This is the optimistic element of this story. It is superior to commence 2017 on a beneficial, optimistic level.
Now, let us occur down to fact. The environment has long gone digital. But, Africa is however gradual in moving from analogue to digital age.
Corruption, illiteracy, poverty, lack of social features, lack of trust, deficiency of information on what it requires to run a organization online, are some of the variables militating against Africa and Africans.
Web penetration is 28.7 percent in my beloved continent. When compared to North The us with 89 per cent penetration stage, this is a significantly cry.
This implies North America with an believed population of 579 million men and women is additional digital than Africa. But, Africa has the marketplace. In fairness, businesses are striving in the continent.
Loads of Africans know small or nothing at all about on the web small business and think that persons who do businesses on line are possibly fraudsters or criminals.
This is not correct. There are authentic and phony company entrepreneurs in all places, world-wide-web inclusive.
Have confidence in has also made it not possible to do small business on-line. With the entire world getting a world-wide loved ones, enterprise proprietors do not need to have to meet up with physically to transact organization. There are no constraints in this digital age to jogging corporations.
Almost everything and anything at all could be marketed online and revenue in community and international currencies transferred from just one portion of the globe to the other.
But, my superior close friend in Lagos, Nigeria, who has masters diploma from one of the oldest universities in our region know very little or practically nothing about jogging an on the net small business.
We were talking about yesterday and he advised me bluntly that he knows up coming to very little about on the net company.
So, he is relaxed going his car pieces from one particular position to the other in look for of consumers.
This is the pains some of on the net company entrepreneurs are heading through in Africa with wonderful potentials.
But, the pains of not getting enough prospects from Africa for your business enterprise are a passing period. Even as the Bible says, this will pass away.
Thus, in 2017, I am positive that much more and much more enterprise homeowners will overcome the pains of heading from analogue to digital in Africa.
I get the emotion deep down that 10 yrs down the line, the tale will transform for the far better and world wide web penetration in Africa will rise.
