Abstract

There is lack of data on entrepreneurial successes in Africa. While there have been numerous research studies on entrepreneurship and family businesses in many regions of the world, there has been relatively little research done in the African context. This lack of research on entrepreneurial success in Africa is due to a variety of reasons such as the fact that most are relatively young and journals are typically housed in universities in developed economies. This chapter describes the success story of a family business in Africa. Specifically, this study sets out to determine the context of starting a family business in Africa: the motivation, type of business, family involvement and the mental attributes, and the challenges in starting and running a family business. Finally, this study recounts some of the lessons from the challenges and successes of the entrepreneur.
