ScaleUp Africa Unlocks Pan-African Business Growth Potential With Business Festival
By: WaxPrint Media
ScaleUp Africa will work with corporations to connect entrepreneurs to the networks and organizational partners needed to scale their solutions. Network connections will include professional advisors and partners to help overcome barriers that prohibit their growth.
By 2050, Africa will account for 50% of the world's population, with half of its population under 25. To say Africa is the future is an understatement. Population growth yields market potential and a major opportunity for SMEs, as African markets will need the jobs, services and general economic growth SMEs will provide.
"We are keen to connect big businesses with SMEs in our community. For example, if a large international Fast-Moving Consumable Goods company signs up to one of ScaleUp Africa's programmes, they will bring their extensive experience of operations from around the world and they would share their knowledge with our entrepreneurs and potentially commit to ways of integrating more Small Businesses into their global supply chains," shared Amma Gyampo
