Impact through Application of Western Technologies in Africa
There are plenty of SMEs in Germany and other Western countries that have developed innovative technologies that can solve problems in Africa - faster, cheaper, and better than existing systems and products. Interesting business models can be created on the resulting customer’s benefit, which can lead to funding new companies. Innovative technologies can open the doors to new markets or allow penetration into attractive market niches.
However, many SMEs do not have the necessary manpower, foreign markets experience, business contacts and sales power that are essential for exploiting promising but difficult growth markets in Africa without external help. Here we can provide the necessary assistance.
We are currently introducing the following technologies in selected African markets:
- Detection of subsurface water resources with very high precision, based on specialized geophysical measurements
- Construction and maintenance of low-volume secondary gravel and earth roads with special machines that are attached to tractors instead of employing more expensive grading machines as prime movers
The above-mentioned technologies will be described in the menu 'investment projects'.
