The Africa rising narrative may have been dampened by political turmoil and depressed commodity prices, but the economic potential of African countries is incomparable. Africa is emerging as a high growth region, with a rapidly increasing population, opportunities for innovation and a developing market.
Africa is made up of 54 sovereign states, each with their own ecosystem, culture and languages. Contrary to popular belief, Africa is not a large single country or a single market, each sovereign state’s economy is diverse.
As a result of the socio-economic growth, political stability in most African countries, improved educational programs and highly educated professionals; there has been a rise of multi-national organisations wanting to expand into the continent. However, many corporations expand their businesses into the continent without an in-depth understanding of local market dynamics. It is important to understand the different risks in the different African countries. A business looking to expand onto the continent needs to understand the Infrastructure, communications network, political environment, governance requirements, financial issues, economic issues, cultural setting, and a number of other factors in determining how to approach their target market.
Market understanding is key. Even Africa based companies need a comprehensive analysis before undertaking an expansion project into another African country. Adge Africa Risk Solutions understand the nuances and complexities of cross border expansion. Our team is equipped to provide advisory services for organisations wishing to expand into Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

3 Principles Every Entrepreneur Needs to know
By Sam Boghigian
When it comes to being an entrepreneur, there is often no “roadmap” or “blueprint” to get you exactly where you want to go, especially if you are just starting out. When I first began my entrepreneurial journey, I remember always trying to figure out what the “perfect” move was. I kept looking for the one thing that would make me massively successful right away. Instead, I learned that there is rarely one move that gets you where you want to be all at once. Most of the time, it’s a series of smaller steps that add up to your ultimate goal over time.Read More
You’ve heard the saying that money doesn’t grow on trees. But what if it did? What would you say if I told you that you could raise a tree that grew cash money instead of leaves? Of course I don’t mean this in the literal sense, but growing a tree is a lot like starting a successful Internet business that when done right can create a huge flow of cash.

People are using the word “agile” more and more during these years. What does it mean exactly?
Agility is the ability to act quickly and with economy of effort in accurate response to change and also to initiate change for business advantage, says Paul Allen.
