Additional Notes

CORONA
In the next two or three months we expect Corona to expand across all countries. Hype or not, well managed or not, good or bad governmental guidance, we can not change that and we refuse to argue over it. The virus needs to be contained and we need to learn how to contain virus outbreaks anyway. We don’t like to debate it – instead we make the best out of it and move forward. That includes digital engagement across all activities. We trust that the epidemic in Africa is contained by summer and we are currently not planning to postpone the trip.

COLLABORATION
During 2019 we learned so much – thanks to all of you – and the above list of activities is reflecting how we believe we can help best. We are always open for additional inputs, feedback, suggestions.

ENTREPRENEURS JOURNEY
Just to reiterate, we are here to help entrepreneurs rise and create big businesses, create jobs and contribute to the local economy. That is a 7 to 12 years journey. Going trough roughly 10 iterations of such a journey we see absolutely no reason why any of the countries should not be on eye-level with any other country in the world by 2038. Prosperity for all nations – through innovation and entrepreneurship.
