Product description


"This is a truly disruptive book, suggesting that today's ambitious entrepreneurs look not to space or silicon but to the savannah." -- Publisher's Weekly

Advance Praise for Africa's Business Revolution:

Christine Lagarde, Managing Director, International Monetary Fund--
"Africa's Business Revolution is a thought-provoking read that confronts many of the myths about Africa and provides a strategic guide to navigating an incredibly dynamic and diverse continent. Africa is experiencing a historic demographic change and I cannot think of a more opportune time for us all to consider the possibilities arising from this transformation."

Tidjane Thiam, CEO, Credit Suisse--
"Africa is not a special continent sitting on a different planet. It presents huge opportunities here and now, and many companies and entrepreneurs are already going after them successfully. This book is a major step in normalizing the way the business world looks at and thinks about Africa."

Aliko Dangote, President and Chief Executive, Dangote Industries Limited--
"A powerful and compelling guide that captures practical know-how for doing profitable and socially impactful business in Africa. This book reaffirms my conviction that Africa is the best-kept secret for a profitable and fulfilling business enterprise."

Mo Ibrahim, Founder and Chairman, Mo Ibrahim Foundation--
"Africa is a billion-person market on the cusp of transformative growth--yet until now little has been published on how global businesses can be part of this exciting story. Africa's Business Revolution fills that gap: it weaves together the authors' rich experience with the perspectives of some of Africa's most successful business leaders."

Penny Pritzker, Founder and Chairman, PSP Partners; former United States Secretary of Commerce--
"This is a must-read for any global business leader looking for opportunities to deliver outsize returns to stakeholders while also meeting Africa's huge unmet demand for goods and services."

David M. Rubenstein, Co-Founder and Co-Executive Chairman, The Carlyle Group--
"The last great emerging market is Africa. For those investors interested in learning why the market offers enormous opportunities over the coming decade, Africa's Business Revolution is an indispensable guidebook."
