If you have no access to opportunities in Zimbabwe then you are at a great disadvantage! If you do not know where opportunities are, how to access them and when-then you will forever be behind as those who have mastered the art of knowing opportunities rarely share information that gives them competitive advantage.

One of the disadvantaged communities is our friends in the diaspora. You are not likely to find opportunities information on the internet which is your only connection with Zimbabwe. Most of the opportunities information is found in hard copy and our forum has come in inorder to plug the gap of information asymmetry.  We would like to thank the Diaspora community for supporting our book. Thank you very much, the book has been placed on our forum shop o the link We are glad that a lot of you are interested in tapping into local opportunities that are emerging in the economy.

The first stage in benefiting is to register a company in a field of your interest. Register a company and start operations on a low basis and build it up over time. We covered this on our book on  the section of why you should register your business. Only registered companies are going to win big in Zimbabwe! Get registered, sort out the paperwork and scout for opportunities.

As a thank you to those who supported our book, we have captured an advert in The Herald for your attention. What should be of interest to you is the construction or repair of roads is providing opportunities for many sectors of the economy. From engineering companies, security companies, Solar energy companies, printing companies, branding companies. Even hard ware shops are benefiting!

Now look at the bad shape of the state of most roads in Zimbabwe and ask yourself the opportunities that will come from the repair and construction process?  How many solar companies will benefit? How many printing companies will benefit? For engineers who had migrated to other countries-you can ignore local opportunities at your own peril.
