Regions 2: Sub-Sahara Africa, Other

Untapped potential: There is much untapped potential in the Sub-Saharan countries of Africa. Potential investors, however, are daunted by the ongoing corruption, lack of transparency and political risk endemic to this largely impoverished area. Cell phone companies, and others, however, have shown that if managed correctly, investment in this region can be extremely profitable.

The Skill Deficit: The lack of expertise in Africa is a problem for both enterprising Africans, and for foreigners who wish to expand their companies into this continent. Individuals, with the relevant skill sets, and who are willing to relocate are needed. A search firm, working on such a project, should have international contacts as well as some experience in the way business is carried out in these countries.
