Segilola Salami's Investing in Africa Virtual Summit 2017 Digital Strategies for entrepreneurs, mumpreneurs, authorpreneurs, bloggerpreneurs

Have you ever considered expanding your business’ reach into Africa but been put off by news in the media?

Would you like to hear from other entrepreneurs who have taken the plunge and gotten positive results?

Then this Investing in Africa Virtual Summit is for you.

Segilola Salami’s Investing in Africa Virtual Summit: Digital Strategies is a 1-day virtual event where several market leaders share their proven step by step strategies that you too can employ when promoting your business in Africa or to Africans.

Why invest in Africa?

According to World Bank, economic growth in Sub-Saharan Africa alone is projected to reach 2.6% in 2017. The continent’s aggregate growth is expected to rise to 3.2% in 2018 and 3.5% in 2019.

Internet access in Africa has been poor compared to the rest of the world as the telecommunications market in the region is still in the early stages. That said, it is now one of the fastest growing markets in the world. What this means for businesses is that there’s a new audience of millions of people eagerly waiting to find out about your products and services.

Nigeria alone, with a population of close to 200 million people, has about 92 million internet users as at December 2016 according to Internet World Stats. The potential for any business is humongous and the best bit is that if you provide electronic products or virtual services, you don’t need to have a physical presence in Africa to promote your business.

What can you expect from this summit?

The guest speakers, who are leaders in their field, will share step by step strategies that they’ve used to promote their products and/or services to Africans worldwide or those residing in Africa. These are strategies that you can use to see growth in your own business too if utilised appropriately.
