A Study of Successes,
This review is from: Entrepreneurship in Africa: A Study of Successes (Hardcover)
".. A study of Successes" grand sweep of the African entrepreneurial scene provides insight to an aspect of the continent that is more or less absent from popular commentary. Dave Fick's study, cataloging entrepreneurs and their enterprises is important for a number of reasons; these include its focus on the atypical African businessperson that lends their success to virtues of resourcefulness, imagination, ingenuity, tenacity and creativity. The latent inherent mercantilism and entrepreneurship that is just beginning to re-flower has lain dormant for reasons that have been tediously discussed, the continents New African's are just starting from were their pre-colonial forbearers left off.
