In a previous post, we highlighted the fact that many multinationals are investing in Africa. Companies like IBM, Ford and General Electric. Africa offers multiple opportunities as the world’s fastest growing continent.
We also shared that companies in South Africa are showing greater interest in Africa. Companies just like yours. And if you’re thinking of getting into Africa, you should do it before your competitors do.
Setting up in Africa
Establishing a business is a massive process. It becomes even more of a process when you’re trying to do it in another country. This might be putting you off growing your business in one of the other countries on the continent.
It doesn’t have to however.
Through sponsored employment in Africa, you can start operations in any African country without having to set up shop first.
Sponsored employment is essentially outsourcing. You can use workers from companies in the country you are interested in exploring or you can place your employees in that country with an employer.
This means you have to cut through very little red tape and spend very little to start operations.
