    The Tony Elumelu Foundation has set an ambitious goal, “…to create 1 million jobs and $10 billion in annual revenue in Africa.” They are choosing 1,000 entrepreneurs from across Africa to be a part of the new TEEP program, and they plan to do 1,000 more each year for 10 years – that’s 10,000 entrepreneurs total. Not a small number. If you do the math, this works out to $10,000 per entrepreneur, so it can’t be about funding as much as it is about learning.

But that’s becoming harder and harder. Governments routinely go into propaganda overdrive, and we need to unpack what’s real, what’s imagined and aspirational.

  • Why Startup Incubators Do Not Work in Africa: A View From Nigerian Startup Founder

    Mark Essien
    5 Mar 2015 | 1:12 am
    I am 100% convinced that the incubation model in Africa is fatally flawed as a method of creating big software companies. Of the 9 biggest software startups in Nigeria, none was built by an incubator (Konga, Wakanow, Iroko, Paga, DealDey, Jobberman, Cheki, PrivateProperty, Nairabet, Nairaland). Of the 15 next biggest software startups after the above, the only one that came out of an incubator is BudgIt, and I’m not sure that BudgIt was properly ‘incubated’, all I know is that they used to operate from CcHub. Incubators just don’t work, otherwise they would have produced more…

The first time I heard it used was in one of Mike Sharman‘s presentations, and it’s become a staple addition to our conversations about how ordinary people achieve extraordinary fame in relatively short time frames, thanks to social media. An obvious portmanteau of pseudo and celebrity, pseulebrity is equal parts exciting, irritating, and…

    26 Feb 2015 | 3:19 am
    Let me tell you how advertising agencies work. Agencies, by and large, sell hours. Unless they find a way to productise intellectual property or build a clever piece of proprietary technology, agency businesses scale by adding staff as they add clients. Win a client, hire people. Lose a client, fire people. Agency owners and executives make money by consolidating with or selling to larger agencies or networks. When founders or shareholders exit they leave their organisation without its key creative or strategic leadership, often with catastrophic implications. The cycle repeats itself over…

And yet, we still have them. We still have them because despite all the wondrous technology at our fingertips we haven’t (yet) developed a comparable replacement for real human interaction. The value of the verbal, non-verbal and environmental cues of a face-to-face engagement are invaluable. Meetings are necessary, but meetings are also undeniably broken.

  • What To Do When an Elephant Charges

    The Zambian Editor
    25 Dec 2014 | 7:12 pm
    If an elephant charges, there are a few handy tips to keep in mind: 1. Determine whether or not the elephant is actually going to charge. 2. Watch the elephant’s ears 3. Listen for warnings as you’ll likely hear trumpeting as a warning from the elephant All of the above, clearly a lot easier if you’re with a Zambian wildlife guide. The BBC features a great story on Mr. Mvula, a wildlife guide and his recent experience with a charging elephant. Mr Mvula is a trained African wildlife guide with more than 20 years of experience.

The Arab world’s one and only State of the Masses, the Socialist People’s Libyan Arab Jamahiriyya, has ended badly. In contrast to the bloodless coup of 1 September 1969 that overthrew King Idris and brought Gaddafi and his colleagues to power, the combined rebellion/civil war/ Nato bombing campaign to protect civilians has occasioned several thousand (5000? 10,000? 25,000?) deaths,…
  • Lee Kuan Yew, the Man Who Remade Asia

    29 Mar 2015 | 5:08 pm
    Orville Schell writing in the WSJ: He preached ‘Asian values’ and turned a tiny, poor city-state into an astonishing economic success. Is Lee’s ‘Singapore model’ the future of Asia?image courtesy of WikipediaWhen I arrived in Singapore one sultry summer evening in 1962 as a 22-year-old student, the Union Jack still fluttered over the British colony. Coolies unloaded wooden boats on the docks, per capita income was languishing under $500 and the young independence leader Lee Kuan Yew was still in his 30s. It was a far cry from today’s well-ordered cityscape of manicured parks,…
  • Rethinking Design - From Industrial to Artisan: Modernism's Sleight-of-Hand

    29 Mar 2015 | 7:22 am
    Lending more credence to the evolving emergent African design aesthetic. In p2p Foundation...Design, in order to be truthful and useful to humanity, needs to accommodate both our anatomy and our neuro-physiological system. Uncomfortable utensils, furniture, and living spaces deny the former; whereas abstract, incoherent, ornament-shorn buildings and urban spaces deny the latter. Biological nature craves richly ordered structural information in our immediate environment, just as much as our neural system needs natural materials, patterns, and textures. Beginning with early modernism, all…
  • How institutional tardiness accelerated the Ebola Epidemic

    29 Mar 2015 | 3:00 am
    Amy Maxmen writing in Nautilus: Matshidiso Rebecca Moeti, the new Africa regional director for the WHO. “The WHO responded quickly,” to Ebola, she insists. The problem, she adds, is that the outbreak moved even faster. As a rule, huge organizations move sluggishly, bogged down in democratic decision-making processes and bureaucratic policies. Ebola, on the other hand, moves fast. People become desperately sick and contagious within a few weeks of infection. By the time international agencies effectively responded to the ongoing Ebola outbreak, it had spiraled out of control in West…

    Borko Handjiski
    20 Mar 2015 | 7:57 am
    What is the main difference between high-income and developing countries? Here is my take: People in the former have much more of pretty much everything. Almost everyone living in high-income countries has access to electricity; in poor (low-income) countries, 7 out of 10 people don’t. Most families in rich countries own a car, but only a few people living in the developing world do. On per capita basis, rich economies have 15 times more doctors than poor countries, consume 40 times more energy, have 50 times more ATMs, and so on.
