As businesses in African increase and expand beyond the borders of the continent, the need for a directory has been realized. Such directories will enable users comfortably search and obtain business information. Introduction of the Internet has made access to such information easier than it used to be years ago. This week I heard of the launch of two main business directories I want to share with you; the Africa On the Blog business Directory and the Nandimobile business directory.
This directory, launched by the Africa-on-the-blog team to offers African’s across the world the opportunity to search and obtain business information about listed companies. Businesses which wish to join the Business Directory would have to pay £5 for business listings and £10 for job vacancy listings, payable through a donate button on the blog.
Infoline is a mobile business directory launched which was launched by award winning startup in the Meltwater Incubator. Over 18,000 business have already been listed in the directory searchable by mobile phones users in Ghana. Business in Ghana can list their businesses for free on the nandimobile website.Infoline, now offers the over 17 million mobile users in Ghana the opportunity to obtain contact details, directions/addresses and services of all listed companies.
