         AFRICA REALLY MATTERS          TO THE WORLD.........

With the economic crisis in many African countries showing no signs of abating, it is important for Africa to make its voice heard above the hubbub. Africa matters because global decisions have a direct impact on the continent’s development prospects, especially when it comes to regulation and climate change.

African countries have demonstrated that they can fulfill their responsibilities by tackling some of the most contentious and entrenched problems facing the world. These are two good reasons why Africa matters to the world.

Entertainment Startup Success Story

iROKOtv News        


iROKOtv Co-Founder Bastian Gotter leaves job as a London-based Oil Trader at BP and moved to Lagos to take on the role of iRoko's COO & CFO. Bastian Gotter is the Co-Founder of iRoko, the VC-backed African entertainment and tech company that has single-handedly changed the face of Nollywood content distribution.  Gotter seed-invested in his friend’s idea to sell African movies online, Gotter had no idea how big a media empire his friend would go on to build. That friend was Jason Njoku, iROKO’s CEO, whom Gotter met while studying at the University of Manchester.

Gotter’s initial seed investment of $150,000 for a 50% stake of iROKO in 2010, as well as Njoku’s shrewd move to bring newly-licensed Nollywood content onto YouTube via an official partnership, saw iROKO grow exponentially. The company attracted the attention of US-based venture capital firm Tiger Global. iROKO closed a $3M Series A funding round.

Abraaj CEO Says Africa Is Core To Investment Plan

Middle Eastern private equity investor Abraaj Group says Africa is core to its investment strategy, as it bets the continent’s rising middle class will consume more goods. The Dubai-based group, which manages $10 billion across its funds, already has about $3 billion invested in Africa in more than 40 companies spanning healthcare, mining and dairy. Chief Executive Arif Naqvi told Reuters that he continues to believe in the opportunities the continent offers.

“It’s the consumption-driven economies that we focus on a lot,” Naqvi said on the sidelines of the World Economic Forum in Davos. “In those economies, as people emerge into the middle classes and move into cities, they’re going to want more product, more infrastructure.”
