Love the insights! For new and upcoming entrepreneurs who are looking to leverage technology to address some of the key challenges facing Africans, how can we navigate the current landscape? What's your advice for leaders who study abroad and want to invest back home? How can they do that?

Thank you, Arnold! I think the most important thing and what we tried to bring with this article is (1) getting a real awareness of the environment in which you want to build i.e the country and (2) making plans that take into account the strengths and areas to you will need to navigate while building for that country. And for most African countries today political stability is a big factor for deciding to work in a country and that's why we see a lot of companies leaving countries that have no political stability.

Awesome! I couldn't agree more that developing a deep understanding of a country's unique context, including its political stability, is absolutely critical when building a business there.

Appreciate the insights!
