Startup AfricaAs Europe and the US struggle to get their finances in order, and the BRIC nations do their best to build on recent successes, another continent has been quietly gaining pace. And lately not so quietly. Last year a stream of articles appeared in the Financial Times and other publications about Africa’s swift growth. The momentum continues and only last week, The Economist had a feature on Twitter use in Africa. The consensus seems clear: Africa has reached a turning point. That’s why the New York Forum is launching NYF AFRICA in June this year. Here are the phenomena that mea(...)

GCF 2012. A focus on entrepreneurs.Entrepreneurship is the key to competitiveness, and it’s something every nation needs to think about. So it is entirely fitting that the Global Competitiveness Forum in Saudi Arabia is placing it at the center of its conference this year. Bringing together a diverse range of high profile speakers from across the world, the three-day event will address the big issues that governments and businesses are facing.

An Exciting Time For The Developing WorldAs I have mentioned before on this blog, one of the most pressing questions of our time is leadership – and the lack of it. Two weeks ago I had the pleasure of moderating a discussion on this topic at the MEDays in Tangiers, which is organized by the Amadeus institute, one of Morocco’s most prominent independent think-tanks. This year, the world has faced some big economic challenges. The world’s largest economy – the US – lost its triple-A rating, the Eurozone plunged into crisis, and citizens around the world began to protest against their governments. At the same (...)
