Informal Firms

 What are informal firms? Are they a solution to Africa’s endemic unemployment, testing ground for nascent entrepreneurs, or perpetuators of poverty? How to harass their dynamism to create wealth?

We challenge key presumptions and seek answers to difficult questions to unlock entrepreneurial and innovation opportunities in the informal sector.



Technology Use in Business

 Digital transformation underway?

We investigate how emerging technologies are used in a range of business activities of micro and small firms. We uncover how firms view and capture the benefits of new technologies to their businesses beyond the macro data to inform national policies and corporate decision making.



Mapping Business Opportunities

 Developing powerful and user-friendly tools, methodologies and systems for mapping, assessing and realizing potential business opportunities.  We work with development agencies, municipalities and international partners to generate opportunity maps
