Your success is our aim; together we move Africa!

Globalization has opened the door for investors to tap new markets and enter the sales market with new business partners.
New potential sales markets are growing rapidly in Africa.
The population of the continent is growing significantly and already consists of one billion consumers. In 2050 the population of the African continent will be about two billion people.
The diversity (diversification) of Africa offers investors long-term economic potential, unlimited opportunities and chances to establish themselves.
Many economists consider this continent to be an essential future market. According to the World Bank and IMF forecasts, sub-Saharan Africa remains one of the fastest growing regions in the world.
European and especially German companies should utilize these opportunities in Africa. The reputation of "Made in Germany", the reliability and the quality of the German economy are a key factor for the success of German companies in Africa.
Many areas such as trade, digitalization, government investment programs like infrastructure, energy supply, road transport, shipping, telecommunications and services offer the greatest opportunities for European entrepreneurs, especially German entrepreneurs.

Some German investors are already in Africa. Despite the growing importance of Africa as an investment and trading partner, the German economy in general is not well represented in Africa.
German companies that are interested in investing in Africa require information of issues such as:
• Where can I invest?
• When can I invest?
• What investment strategies can be implemented?
• Which potential cooperation partners can I address?
• What are the opportunities and risks linked to dedicated investments?

In Africa business relationships are based on trust. Trust is therefore the prerequisite and the beginning of every serious and sustainable business relationship. Business relations in Africa can only have success if you have a strong personal relationship with your business partners. Instigating and maintaining these relationships requires a large investment of time, which Wete Consulting has already done for you. Use this for your investment objectives.

Intercultural consulting and intercultural training

Different cultures have different mannerisms. Anyone who wants to get in contact with people, to negotiate and communicate, must know their habits and values.

Many German entrepreneurs describe the African markets as "difficult markets", because these markets are unknown, in particular the way in which decisions are made.

Business relations from an African perspective are always personal. These decisions depend upon a relationship cultivated over time and based upon a history of mutually beneficial interactions.
These include a respectful approach, trust, friendliness, fair conduct, a valued approach, and partnership based on transparency as important success factors for the African market.

The mentality of African business partners plays an important role in business relations. This mentality is influenced by culture, education, religion and tradition in the country. It affects every decision in the business. It is of great importance to know the mentality and adapt to it, so that your services and products will be sold successfully in the market. These intercultural skills are the prerequisite for successful cooperation.

Wete consulting will accompany you, and carefully prepare you how to properly conduct yourself in order to avoid cultural pitfalls and secure your investment on the African continent.
