Nigerians excluded in Forbes Top 20 Young Africa Builders

Nigerians excluded in Forbes Top 20 Young Africa Builders
The latest ranking published by Forbes magazine completely excluded Nigerian entrepreneurs for 20 builders of tomorrow's Africa. At the top of the list is Senegalese Magatte Wade, business woman of 38 years and the founder of Adina World Beat Beverages, which sells tea, coffee and juice-based Senegalese revenue in the United States.

Second place goes to another Senegalese Dieynaba Bakiri Ndoye (37), co-founder signs Colorii specializing in beauty devoted to black and mestizo women.

Côte d'Ivoire is also represented by two entrepreneurs: Eric Kacou, co-founder of the consulting firm Partners ES and Swaady Martin-Leke, former head of General Electric south of the Sahara has launched its luxury brand of tea Yswara.

Congo has one contractor, namely Verona Mankou (27 years), designer of the first African touchpad (Way-C) and patron of the technology company VMK. Togo has, too, a single contractor, namely Jean-Marc Savi Tové From (40), associated with Cauris Management.
