Synopsis:
PRESENTATIONS by York Zucchi

How Africa forces you to be innovative.

1. Swiss entrepreneur and investor in Africa
2. With my international network and background what has led me to choose Africa (i.e. what makes SA and Africa so special compared to other countries)?
3. What have my experiences been in setting up companies and doing deals in SA and SSA? Touching various topics, from soft issues (managing expectations) to hard issues (infrastructure, legislation, etc). What screw ups have we made. What has worked. All with the caveat of subjectivity – what works for me may not work for others.
4. The dynamics of doing business in emerging markets vs. more established markets.
5. The world is paying attention to Africa. The gap between perception and reality is closing. What does the world think of Africa as an investment destination?
6. Who is going to be eating your lunch? It is not who you think… Noise vs real disruptors.
7. Reason to be optimistic about the future and why I am here to stay
