Pivot to Purpose – Working in Africa’s Private Sector

When we hit a crossroads in our careers, we often consider major shifts. Maybe we are thinking about a pivot from corporate to entrepreneurship, or maybe from the public sector to the private sector. But what about working overseas? As part of our series “Pivot to Purpose” on Protégé Podcast, I talk with Kwame Som-Pimpong, a millennial business leader who manages the Africa Business Fellowship. The Africa Business Fellowship will match young American business professionals with paid placements in African companies. Maybe your Pivot to Purpose should extend beyond Wall Street and Silicon Valley. Maybe it’s time to include startups, finance, and tech companies in Senegal, Ghana, and South Africa.
