5 Reasons to Start a Company in Africa


Here are the real reasons you need to start a company in Africa. This is as packaged by ALNventures. ALN (African Leadership Network) Ventures is a startup accelerator established to develop early-stage, private ventures across Africa. They help entrepreneurs looking to move beyond a fledgling enterprise. The defining characteristic of ventures that succeed in Africa is access to networks – networks that provide mentors and experts, capital, and a talented team to build companies. Their program is built on an extensive network of investors, mentors, topic experts, entrepreneurs-in-residence, and peer entrepreneurs. The emphasis is on a tailored program – they recognize that not every startup needs the same things, and we will bring you the mentors, financing, experts and peers that you need.
