Why should startups consider doing business in Africa in the first place?
This is the question people often ask us: Why should startups consider doing business in Africa in first place. We’ll try to explain with example. Do you know what was first country outside USA where startup today valued $68 Billion dollars had operations in 3 cities at same time and had biggest worldwide growth? Most people know that startup is Uber, but only few would guess that country is South Africa. If you are not sure that Africa is a great place for your business, think about it once more.
Besides South Africa other big countries in Sub Saharan Africa are emerging and developing third world countries. Exceptions are urban centres in biggest cities, like Lagos, Nairobi and Accra. First step is to do on site market research to see in which countries are biggest opportunities for our clients’ business. In African countries startups have all they need for growth and scaling-appropriate market size, English language, similar time zone like Europe, less competitors, our help with market entry.
