We here in Scandinavia rely a lot on information technology and digital services. It is an important part of your economy and infrastructure. That is also a reason we are leading within R&D and create many new innovations. We here in Scandinavia are very early adapters to new technology but we also need to export more as we are only some 25 million people all together in the whole of Scandinavia. As visitor to both East and West Africa we can see tremendous growth within IT and mobile telecom. This opens the door for many new ICT companies to establish and grow, independently or with partners for joint ventures.
We have helped IT companies to establish themselves and grow in new markets for many years. We focus a little more on West and East Africa right now and markets such as Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda in East Africa and markets such as Ghana, Nigeria and the Ivory Coast in West Africa. We work with international business and we can help you establish and grow in both West and East Africa. We offer consulting / staffing solutions and assignments can take both part time and full time. We may even offer the entire sales team for specific selected markets and has worked as the sales office for companies looking to grow in new markets in both the West and / or East Africa. What sets us apart is that we are also actively involved with coaching, training and drive projects forward to achieve mutual success with our customers.
For Swedish companies there are also help available to finance a project. Swedfund can (for example) help a Swedish company if one is not more than 249 employees and has an annual turnover not exceeding 450 million. This includes most ICT companies we have in Sweden today. Many have cutting edge technology but as market is limited in size they stay fairly small to medium size. Swedfund support takes the form of an amortization loan and we can help with this project and can convey partners on the ground in both West and East Africa, in addition to our own means.
