Overcoming Entrepreneurship Challenges in Africa

Of course, there are challenges that need to be overcome in order to fully realise the potential of entrepreneurship in Africa. Access to finance remains a major issue for many entrepreneurs, particularly those operating in more remote or rural areas. There is also a need for greater support and mentoring for those who are just starting out in business, as well as for more established entrepreneurs who are looking to scale up their operations.
