Running a successful small business is never an easy task and doing such a task in Africa has its additional challenges. An African entrepreneur is faced with a lack of a skilled workforce, an unreliable infrastructure, and political barriers. However, with perseverance, the correct ideals, and a global/local outlook, one can overcome and create a successful business.
African entrepreneurialism has reached historic peaks in recent years and the entrepreneurial spirit in Africa is booming. While it is true that the continent as a whole has taken an economic hit due to today’s stressful oil and commodity economy, many countries have begun to diversify and focus on opportunities that exist in technology, healthcare, tourism, energy, agriculture, and more. This has given new hope to young entrepreneurs, who are feeling more positive about the prospects of successful business.
