How Do I Know if Starting a Business In Cameroon Is Right for Me?

Business is not a calling, its not the clouds opening up and a voice from the heavens saying, ‘I command you to open up a hot dog stand on the streets of Bonapriso’. It’s a discipline, it involves hard work, commitment. It involves, fighting, pushing, learning, failing over and over and over again and it does not matter if your choice of venue is Cameroon or any other country in the world. The complexities of Cameroon as a third world country are numerous and further compound progress. There is a lack of regulation, there is minimal transparency, information is scarce and corruption is a staple. The answer lies within you as to the intent, the objective, what we commonly refer to as your ‘why!’. If there is a need for a service, product or commodity, it may be an opportunity to start a business, but it is your ‘why’ that will motivate you to go through the hurdles necessary for making the dream a reality. It’s your why that will keep you past the obstacles you will undoubtedly encounter. However, it is the network you create, the company you keep and the mentors you seek that will cement your growth and enable you to endure the tireless rigamarole of corruption, bribery, false information, repeat trips to Cameroon, sourcing and distribution matrix and human resource challenges that you will be faced with. If you seek to fulfill a need, are willing to endure the transformation, and make those sacrifices then yes, starting a business in Cameroon is right for you.

There are, however, extra hurdles that are part of your onboarding process. In some circumstances, you may be asked to partner with local Cameroon nationalists to ensure benefits flow into the communities. You will be required to comply with known state regulations and laws.
