TheNewAfrica Short Concept

In order to give you an idea, how you can cooperate with TheNewAfrica in the future, please find a brief concept below.

TheNewAfrica is a media and event brand creating a fresh viewpoint on Africa as the continent of chances, challenges and changes. We are putting the young and aspiring African achievers who want to bring their countries, their societies, their continent forward in the limelight of attention, ignoring for once the disasters and conflicts. We like to encourage the protagonists of TheNewAfrica to go ahead, that’s why we want to put their success stories on the international agenda. If you have a perspective, if you see the potential and if you can be proud of your progress, change will come!

But TheNewAfrica does not concentrate on work and business alone. It’s about lifestyle, culture, behavior, contemporary arts as well.

For detailed information about the opportunities with regard to the following three phases, please send your E-Mail to Founder and Editor-in-Chief Beate Wedekind – or

Phase 1:

We have launched our ONLINE JOURNAL TheNewAfrica on Oct 12, 2013. We are aggregating and curating the most relevant stories from the best media. We report on the individual rather than on the big players. The platform is aiming to connecting with its users in different unique ways.

Phase 2:

In early summer 2014 the first TheNewAfrica YEARBOOK will be published. In a printed copy as well as online. It will contain 365 pages and will have a comprehensive 100 pages section on TheNewEthiopia. The YEARBOOK can be preordered at a special copy price.

Phase 3:

In early autumn 2014 we will organize the first TheNewAfrica NETWORKING EVENT. It will include a mentors’ scheme, a startup competition and TheNewAfrica 100 Award for unreasonable young entrepreneurs
