Good news for companies in East Africa. Stanford Institute for Innovation in Developing Economies (SEED) are now opening its second centre in Africa, this time in East Africa and the door will open in May 2016! The first one has been in Accra Ghana but second centre is located in Nairobi, Kenya. We have been part of the Volunteer Advisor program that now also has been renamed to the Stanford Seed Consultant program. We are currently a part of this Consultant program in Africa. Companies from East Africa are now welcome to apply for the SEED Transformation Program. Please apply online before January 15, 2016.

Our focus here in Sweden is management in knowledge driven enterprises and international business development. Most of our experience has come from business between Europe and Asia but more of our attention are now moving to Africa. The continent needs to be divided in different regions with different opportunities and challenges. What is true in most places of Africa is that infrastructure can and should improve, agriculture industries need to develop and education, healthcare and information technology needs to improve and that offers many interesting opportunities for foreign businesses.
Contact us and we can discuss this further. If you are a Company from East Africa, take a chance to apply for the SEED Transformation Program and if you are from West Africa, the SEED office in Ghana is up and running since a long time.
Let’s all grow in Africa!
