African universities play an important role in the development of entrepreneruship in Africa, can be a good starting point for an entrepreneur to develop a project.

Development of resources for young Africans can begin to develop their ideas at the same university will be important to start new businesses and jobs in the continent.

Develop research on business creation and entrepreneurship among university students from multi-discipline, providing new business models and innovative strategies in the current socioeconomic field.

Africa mysterious …. Invest in Africa?

africaaaaa

Good Morning friends,

How are you? With my first coffee in the morning …

Have your ever thought of  investing in China? They do not know what they are lost . Some say that the black continent is the future of China …

Somalia, Ethiopia, Rwanda famines, civil wars, humanitarian disasters, coups d’etat …for decades, there were the images of Africa for export… We can not surprising that Western investors have avoided putting their capital in risky destination.

But something seems to be changing, we must contrast the myths with reality to know what is truth in all this .

There is a conference  was organized by the Wharton School of  Business entitled Wharton – Unveiling the Value Demystifying the Risk , it was  very interesting confrontation treated the myths of the African reality to see what’s true in all these mental images that the West was formed on lands of  Kofi Annan, Nelson Mandela .

For decades the African continent has been far from the international area, but new winds blowing to the African continent …smell business opportunities are no longer alone in the holdings of natural resources, is now also the technology.

If you’are looking for business opportunities might not be a bad idea to think  in Africa continent.

Good Morning friends,

How are you? During the earlier years of business in Africa have been developing very slowly,despite the large amount of resources available to the continent.

Africa depended largely on these natural resources, currently is producing change of mentality with the development of private investors and entrepreneurs, capable of tranforming the continent improve economic opportunities and social.

 Africa is rich with oil,diamonds,gas etc.. Transform this wealth should be well on transparency in institutions of the countries, in the training and preparation of individuals as well as in innovation.

Stimulating the resurgent private investment  and the rise of entrepreneurial activity to assist African development.

Internet and the new economy

leave a comment »

Good Morning friends, how are you?

With my first coffee of the morning  I was thinking about the relationship of the Internet and new economy.

What is happening in recent years? That almost all the inner workings of a business,relationship with suppliers and customers is being done by the network. As well as the transformation of the functioning of the capital,as schematically the center of global economy is glabalized financial markets that operate through connections between computers.

This is the aspect of the new economy it is true that the development  of the uses of the Internet begins the first in those high-tech companies but from there it spread rapidly to all types of businesses by creating a new model of corporate organization.

But information and knowledge through the network does not arrive at the same tiem to all countries,this is the case and that 15.6% of the world’s people are connected to the Internet.

We emphasize that LatinAmerica  was the fastest growing in the last four years in which Internet accesss is concerned. The penetration of global Internet population in Africa 4.7%, Latinoamerica/Caribe 41.7% y Asia 12.4%.

– Actually for the development of a country is important to the development of new technologies –

How are you today? Thanks to reforms in the business rules are being built businesses in some countries.

According with the study performed by Doing Business ,study based on the classification of countries in reforms to improve the creation of enterprises through on 10 indicators on business regulations. Analyze the time and expense that is used to meet the requierements established by the government for the setting up of a company, its operations, its market activity, their taxation and its closure.

Entrepreneurs: Women’s Initiatives

with 2 comments

Good Morning Friends,
How are you? With my first coffee of the morning was watching videos of women entrepreneurs who fight  to do what they like.

Women with courage, believe in themselves, a principle not ever go away, the illusion of having begun.
Sometimes not have the best circumstances for to do a business project in Africa, India or Latinoamerica go forward, are women with an unbeatable spirit who would help generate wealth and create jobs in the region.

In these continents there are significant business opportunities in business creation will enable sustainable development in the continents

Good Morning friends,

How are you?  with my first coffee of the morning I was thinking about Obama’s visit to the headquarters of Google  in Mountain View California, which took place some months ago.

The words of democrat were ” Help Me to do it, Help Me to change the world, in the same way that Google has done”.

 Obama stated the importance of technology and innovation that has changed the world.
His attempt to reach the technological revolution to all parts of the world to facilitate a future of prosperity.

 Among the objectives is that Africa and parts of Asia will have the possibility of connected to the network.  More than half of the donations from Google employees have been for political Obama.

“Need to improve technologies in developing countries”
