This discussion presents the findings of a survey of modern indigenous African entrepreneurs. Far from being what has been described as ‘the missing middle’, these entrepreneurs can be seen as the true pioneers of development in sub-Saharan Africa. With the proper support, this productive sector can be expected to grow, and with that expansion, help alleviate poverty and stimulate social progress. The intended audience consists of policymakers, aid donors, and advisers concerned with African economic development, and this chapter addresses some key issues of strategy and policy as they are seen through the eyes of modern African entrepreneurs. It is hoped that this different perspective will be helpful in designing programmes to foster African entrepreneurship.
