AFRICAPITALISM AND THE SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS: IMPLICATIONS FOR BUSINESS AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP IN AFRICA
res a reimagined economic philosophy. This is where Africapitalism comes in. Simply put, Africapitalism is an economic philosophy that embodies the private sector’s commitment to the economic transformation of Africa through investments that generate both economic prosperity and social wealth. Thus, it is important to understand how Africapitalism, as an economic philosophy, can guide businesses and entrepreneurs to strike a balance between their traditional goal of profitability and the societal goal of sustainable development. Specifically, can the tenets of Africapitalism help businesses and entrepreneurs in Africa act in a way that aligns them with the sustainable development of the continent?
