We believe that Nordic companies can make a significant difference in Africa. In the Nordic countries we are known for innovation, fast decision-making and a short distance to the top management. We are also known for our green change and focus on UN’s sustainable goals. And there are great business opportunities for all sectors in Africa. If your organisation would like to hear more about the business opportunities in Africa, you can book us for a lecture. We hold lectures at board meetings, for the management team and specific groups in your organisation with focus on business in Africa.
What our customers are saying
“When it comes to business in Africa, Flemming is considered to be one of the most knowledgeable and inspiring persons to go to. In 2003 he started AFRICA INNOVATION NETWORK which today is Denmark’s first and largest nationwide business network of interests and investments in Africa. They are in contact with over 1000 stakeholders and companies with an interest in Africa each year. AFRICA INNOVATION NETWORK consists of companies from all industries, educational institutions, ministries, authorities, NGOs, Investmentfond for Developing Countries, Denmarks Export Credit Agency, The Trade Council, various trade associations, Danida and the resident African ambassadors etc”.
“The purpose of our Africa Conference, which was created in collaboration with the CEO of Nordekon, Mr. Flemming Sørensen, was to enlighten the fantastic business opportunities that Africa offers now and in the future. Several countries in the continent have increase of population, high growth rates and a fast growing purchasing power. All over Africa large public/private environmental, energy and infrastructure projects are born and food and healthcare are focus area. All in all, that opens huge opportunities for Danish and Nordic businesses. At the conference we presented several exciting company cases and Flemming Sørensen raised his great knowledge about business opportunities, business concepts, challenges and pitfalls in regards to doing business in Africa”.
“Nordekon is a great network and platform for doing business in Africa. I have had the pleasure of Nordekon’s engaged consultants speaking about and discussing sustainable business models in Africa, and I believe it will be hard to find anyone so well-knowledgeable and inspiring when talking about how Nordic companies can do (sustainable) business in Africa. Furthermore I believe Nordekon has the most extensive business network not only in Africa but also in the Nordics, that any business can benefit from”.
