Kakehashi Africa offers business support to Japanese enterprises through market research information, surveys and case studies. Other support can come through consultancy services. We evaluate the feasibility and economic viability for proper targeting. We also match our members with Japanese enterprises based on their skills and field of expertise.
Our organization encourages the spirit of entrepreneurship among members. By engaging Japanese enterprises, our members are able to come up with innovative and creative solutions to challenges facing Africa. Japanese products can then be fine-tuned for each region in Africa instead of "one shoe fits all" solution.
Our business conferences and training seminars are opportunities for entrepreneurs and potential investors to meet and engage in discussions about viable solutions to challenges in Africa. Young people obtain necessary skills to face local challenges as well global experience to promote broader long term solutions.
Network partners and partners engage one another in an interactive business dinner full of cuisine, smooth Jazz and entertainment. In these dinners, a budding entrepreneur may pitch their ideas to potential investors.
