Often times, people have great business ideas but seem crippled due to various reasons (real and imagined). Some talk about capital – inadequate funds to start, lack of manpower, the fear of failure, not enough time and so many other legitimate hitches. A few people are able to cross the hurdles and “just do it” but still struggle to survive. At best some remain at a hand-to-mouth stage almost all through the business life, while a handful succeed. Interestingly, it has been established that three out of every four venture backed startups fail. The statistics are particularly worrisome in a world where there is a huge mismatch between the number of graduates and the jobs available.
The good news is that there is a wide, under-explored range of indigenous and mainstream solutions that help build sustainable businesses in Africa. This is why W&B consulting was birthed. We do not promise to solve the entire unemployment/startup failure problem, but we attempt to handle a large chunk of it, one Startup at a time. W&B consultants team up with aspiring and budding start-up founders to help them tackle indigenous business challenges, address peculiar problems, and attain sustainable growth.
