africon’s team has experience in doing business with and in Africa. This ensures reliable data preparation and rapid implementation of projects, taking into account cultural context.
Africa is home to the world’s fastest-growing population with rapidly increasing urbanization rates in many countries.
While Africa’s markets contain great opportunities, numerous international firms face challenges when doing business on the continent. A key reason is the very significant differences in the business environments in Africa, and those in other global markets. One such challenge is that Africa’s markets are not easy to tap into, and differences between countries are often huge. Another issue is missing/conflicting information on the size and composition markets.
Firms intending to expand business in Africa need to “do their homework” regarding numbers. They need to understand the differences between total market sizes and accessible market segments. Different options regarding the routes to market need to be evaluated based on costs, risks, and benefits. In many cases, the process of finding and selecting the right partners locally plays a critical role as gaining “local know-how” and access to strong distribution networks is key to success.
You are probably positioned strongly around the world and plan to expand in Africa as your next growth frontier. Or you are already in a few African countries and plan to expand to more in 2022.
