The Africapitalist Foundation’s most recent issue of their Africapitalist Magazine has a cover story on the true size of opportunity in Africa.
Readers familiar with my exploratory user research and insights from the prepaid economy and the informal sector will recognize the key point being made – that we must look beyond the obvious when assessing the size and value of these opportunities.
Africa’s emerging consumer markets will provide that challenge to transform marketing in the emerging future. Bridging the gap between the formal and the informal will be key to growth, as demonstrated already by the telcom operators with their prepaid business model.
