Well written and very interesting. All over the world startups fail, but the African perspective is fascinating. You are the kind of person I keep in mind when writing my own blog Inventive Africa (www.inventiveafrica.net). The ideas and innovations coming from Africans in Africa is stunning. I find myself trawling the internet everyday to read about more great ideas and write about them.
Please have a look at my blog, I would be interested to hear your comments. (I will also be tweeting this blog, it really is great)
