Cameroon is the new land of start-ups and entrepreneurship. With economic development and the birth of a real middle class, business opportunities are multiplying.
Many trained and creative Cameroonians wish to undertake and are looking for profitable business ideas to create, to make a fortune or simply to live passionately and comfortably.
There is no shortage of promising sectors: tourism, energy, construction and construction, internet and social networks, training, services, but also more traditional sectors such as food and games.
However, the Cameroonian business environment presents obstacles:
- difficult access to finance,
- administrative and customs barriers,
- legal issues,
- difficulty recruiting qualified or trusted personnel,
- infrastructure and industrial fabric sometimes too underdeveloped.
For each of these obstacles, the Cameroonian entrepreneur will have to find a solution, or create it himself!
A word of advice: start from the needs of the clientele, be creative and imaginative. Leave determined, while remaining patient, because the sown seeds always take time to germinate. Work in a network and share your experiences.
Entrepreneurship and success in Cameroon is not simple, but spaces exist to find its place.
