His goal and ultimate professional mission is to help overseas bodies, firms and individuals get a good entry, settlement and capture of the African market and for African bodies and organisations to grow and establish themselves in the international market.

That is my sad face!!!!

If you are African and you still manage to make a head way as a student or professionally in the midst of the imbalance, kudos to you. It is not fair game...........and it's why I love what I do. Trying to bridge little gaps in little ways.

According to Internet World Stats, at the end of 2019 Africa had the lowest internet penetration rate at 39.3%. Compare this to Europe and North America, with the highest penetration rates of 87.2% and 94.6%, respectively.

African countries spend about 1.1% of GDP on digital investment, while advanced economies spend an average of 3.2%. Talk of a digital divide. Increased dependence on digital structures due to COVID has just made this even worse. Therein lies the monster opportunities!!!!

Meanwhile, the probability of employment—regardless of education level—increases by 6.9 to 13.2 percent when fast internet becomes available, as it facilitates firm entry and boosts productivity.

If you are an international company, institution or organisation interested in Africa and its capacity for digitisation, and you do not understand localisation, it's a clear show of marginalisation.

What is worth doing at all, is worth doing well!!!!

Happy new month friends and partners.

Last month ended on a great note as working with Lancaster University, we won a new British Council Digital University Africa grant fund to develop an online programme on Stimulating Entrepreneurship Thinking in Scientist (SETS) for Africa.

This is to provide a robust online program to help African researchers and academics become resourceful, enterprising and solutions-oriented beyond just publishing of research papers for promotion.

There are models, strategies, politics, and even secrets of winning international funding. This month I am giving training sessions on how to source, apply and win international funding. If you want to book a session for your institution, company or organisation, send an email to akan.odon@envirofly-group.com
