The way companies from our part of the world conduct business generally differs from the way business is done in for instance Africa. You can improve your success rate and save valuable time and money in your operation. For example, a major cultural difference is the perception and management of time. By understanding the different perspectives you can expand and optimise your business significantly.

The success of your business can depend on the partnership structure and business strategy with your local partner(s). Identification of your local partner(s) are timeconsuming and will require some investments in the intial phase. Once you have identified a range of local partners, you need to invest the sufficient time in trustbuilding, mutual strategy and the way forwatd. Business can not be run from a distance, you need to involve relevant ressources and invest sufficient time to make sure your business idea is discussed and properly aligned. Doing business in emerging markets are often based on navigating in networking cultures and having the right and best connections. Combining this with our Nordic way of doing sustainable business can be very fruitfull, if done the right way. Visiting the country you are about to penetrate is a crusial and sustainable part of “doing your homework”.
