This article is part of our blog series "Celebrating the African Business Narrative: Experiences from the Continent". Setting the stage for the Fall Forum, this series focuses on the challenges and opportunities that members of our Frontier Leader Network face when doing business in Africa. These stories were previously published on Devex as part of our "Changing Perceptions" series. The Forum will be held in Washington D.C. from October 19-21, 2015.
How has the perceptions of Africa as a "high risk" environment affected business investments? Frontier Leader Papa Madiaw Ndiaye, CEO of AFIG Fund, shares his thought on this and on why these perceptions are changing.
