There is no doubt that the interest in African investment has increased over the last couple of years, and with Africa being a very wide open market a good number of people have started opening and running successful businesses in Africa. CNBC highlights some entrepreneurs in Nigeria, and they discuss how they started, how the business is going, why they decided to run a business in Nigeria, and the obstacles they face. For those that are interested in doing things back home, this is a good view. Also check out CNN’s video on the growing job market in Nigeria.

  1. Very interesting videos. Unfortunate that they are all centered around Lagos which seems to be the only part of the country where things are picking up.

    • Well Lagos has always been the financial capital of Nigeria so it's only natural for things to pick up there first. Hopefully it creates an effect on other parts of Nigeria also
