Africa: Continent of Economic Opportunity

If you have read any of my previous posts about Africa, such as “Entrepreneurs Needed in Africa“, you know how passionate I am about Africa and my desire to use entrepreneurship as a driver to empower the people of Africa economically and socially. Now, there is a book available that brings to life the accomplishments and triumphs of African entrepreneurs.
STE Publishers has just published Africa: Continent of Economic Opportunity by David S. Fick. This rollercoaster of a book is bursting with innovation and ideas and will change your view of Africa forever(click here to get the book at
The development of Africa is a subject that concerns not only the continent but the rest of the world. Having travelled extensively throughout the world and researched this book for six years, David Fick remains optimistic about the future. Everywhere, he has seen how small businesses are creating jobs and transforming economies.
In Africa: Continent of Economic Opportunity, Fick shows how a wide range of businesses in Africa are succeeding in spite of enormous social and economic challenges. He presents a vast and diverse array of case studies of small, medium and large business enterprises and community projects in every country throughout the continent, showing how all citizens of this extraordinary continent can become successful with a little imagination, education and persistence.
Fick is also the author of Entrepreneurship in Africa: A Study of Successes (click here to get the book at and is currently researching his third book, African Entrepreneurs in the 21st Century (coming in 2008), which will feature examples of African entrepreneurs who have demonstrated visionary and strategic entrepreneurial leadership across the continent.
Furthermore, Fick donates all author’s royalties due to him from the sale of his first – and this, his second – book to Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in support of their medical relief projects in Africa and will do the same when his third book is published.
If you are even remotely interested in the growth and sustainable development of Africa, especially through entrepreneurial ventures, I would highly recommend David’s books.

One Response to Africa: Continent of Economic Opportunity

  1. Thanks you! Thank you! Thank you! As an African now living in the US with plans of going back to Africa in about ten years, I say, ASANTE SANA! This is massive! Africa is beyond ‘having potential’. Africa is on the cusp of breakthroughs! Few recognize this, but the cradle of civilization will once again become a global leader. Thanks for highlighting the progress taking place in Africa.
