Africa is an entrepreneurial nation; observe the dynamics and spirits of the citizens. Nation-by-nation and city-by-city they thrive with little or no tools in hands but with strong determination and desire to grow. Technology today has become a river; flowing like new bloodstreams amongst the nations, teaching the populace how to catch the fish is now a priority, the fire to cook comes all by itself. If there are any lessons from the developed economies they are all about skill sets morphed into business mindedness, the confidence of entrepreneurialism raised the bars on grassroots prosperity and created bustling economies, multiplied export for the global trade and the wealth provided respectable living to reckon with. Rest is history.

Meritocracy will be the biggest test when upgrading of economies and quadrupling of organizational structures comes into play.
