I have visited a number of African countries and elaborated on risks which African entrepreneurs face, one of these risks is but is not limited to public administrative services, these are capable of discouraging and/or delaying businesses from the registration level and launching an administrative offensive with multiple taxes to trap even intrapreneurs who resisted and proceeded up to startup or development level.
Intrapreneurs are developing slowly due to the many administrative challenges imposed by public services and multiple and heavy impositions. There are years, I ceased the activities of my two companies due to this heavy public administrative burden. After this calamity, I decided to learn how the African system works, its laws, and regulations. After this difficult but constructive experience, I can advise how to face public administrative challenges without falling into corruption, which I personally consider a waste of resources to start entrepreneurs.
1. Mentoring entrepreneurs from idea to development stage of their enterprises;
2. Scanning proposed solutions and streamlining them to meet market needs;
3. Accompany entrepreneurs who are planning to operate in Rwanda, DR Congo, Uganda, Tanzania, Kenya, and Burundi;
4. Advise on what is required to gain government contracts and/or get funds, especially in the above-listed countries;
It is time for today’s African intrapreneurs to gain African public contracts. It is unthinkable for Chinese, European, and American companies to supply raw tomatoes, tea, vegetables, and supply chickens… to institutions and United Nations Missions present in Africa. Local/national entrepreneurs must also know the required maneuvers to get both national and international contracts.
Hope we will be given this opportunity to mentor and support one another in a constructive way.
