Challenges and opportunities of entrepreneurship projects in Sub-saharian Africa
While one in six men lives in Africa today, more than one in three would live there in a century? With 1.2 billion inhabitants in 2017, the continent is expected to approach 2.5 billion in 2050.
What can we learn from Africa? What can we do in or for Africa?
Nadine Reichenthal will share with you the opportunities and challenges she is facing implementing her various projects in Sub-Saharan Africa and answer to your questions on the second biggest continent!
We are looking forward to see you all in this session that will take place next Wednesday June 2nd, 2021 from 12:00 to 13:00.
Nadine Reichenthal studied economics at HEC Lausanne (1977). She started travelling in Sub-saharian Africa in 1978 because she wanted to understand relations between Religion and Economic Development in polytheist societies, as a complement to Max Weber’s Work economy & society (Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft. Grundriß der verstehenden Soziologie).
She set up inspection services for more than 140 countries and 14 business sectors for Societe Générale de Surveillance (SGS) (www.sgs.com) in 2000.
She developed the Venturelab Program (National Entrepreneurial Training initiative for Western Switzerland, www.venturelab.ch) from 2004 to 2012.
In 2015 she started developing the Digital Entrepreneurship Program for Emerging countries with International Trade Center which focuses now in Sub Saharan Africa https://www.intracen.org/e-Trade-for-Impact/Fast-Tracking-Digital-Entrepreneurship-in-Africa/
She also works with NGOs focusing on Women and Youth Digital Empowerment and Academic Program in Sub-Saharan Africa and co-organized the Salon international de l’entrepreneuriat africain (https://www.salonafriquezks.com).
