Lost in Africa

Lost in Africa


One of the barriers that entrepreneurs often face is a feeling of isolation. As an SME or start-up with few (if any) employees, it’s not unusual to feel like you are facing the world alone. Joining networks and associations can help – you can meet fellow entrepreneurs, discuss the challenges you face, listen to the solutions others in your position have developed and form synergies.

With more and more interaction moving online, the same has now happened with entrepreneurial networks.

The Lost in Africa (LIA) network is a free entrepreneurial networking site that brings entrepreneurs and corporate employees together to discuss business, their organisations and elevate trade in Africa, particularly amongst SMEs.

“We designed the network as a platform for entrepreneurs in Africa to be heard, communicate and share economic ideas to elevate trade across Africa,” says Sizwe Magutshwa from Ndzeko Investments, which has launched the site.

Services include:

  • Free registration
  • Free industry collaborations
  • Building new contacts
  • Free connection and interaction with new and existing contacts
  • Free quotations
  • An unlimited gallery
  • Free uploads
  • Free profile traffic statistics

Go to www.lianetwork.com to find out more and explore the network for yourself.
