African Entrepreneurs Ascending

Steve Rucinski of Small Business CEO emailed me a link to an article suggesting that African eCommerce may be on the verge of bigger and better things.

A joint marketing agreement between Quadrem and TradeWorld holds promise of growing the revenues of South Africa’s 75,000 small and midsize enterprises (SMEs). The venture creates the largest eMarketplace in Africa. It will bring together buyers and sellers, especially buyers that are requesting more quotes from black-empowered SMEs.

And as this article points out, all it takes is some energetic entrepreneurs to build up Africa in much the same way America was built by entrepreneurs.
