African Business Update (ABU) is a bi-weekly e-Report that features business activities in 10 African countries. These African countries were strategically and methodologically selected using the size of economy, population, ease of doing business, etc. Highlighting new technologies, the bi-weekly report features successful stories of businesses that include small, medium, and large enterprise, start-ups companies, and innovation in all sectors. The stories not only outlined the project plan but also captures successful products launch, deployment of technologies, customers base, and market shares. Our reports are sourced from different media outlets across the ten African countries.
