The Business Machine is a project that promotes development in Africa through joint initiatives between entrepreneurs from Europe and Africa. Being an entrepreneur is however not a matter of money or experience, but a state of mind: We are not looking for somebody to invest huge amounts of money into a project. The Business Machine wants to bring together people ready to take personal risks and to work personally for an idea they believe in.
A study visit for a first pilot project in Ethiopia will take place in March 2010 in Addis Ababa. In a joint meeting, different ideas for concrete business projects will be created in 2010.
