The Multi-Impact Corporation and the Making of the 21st Century Africa
This edition of Remake Africa Insights takes the business leader or investor on a journey into the evolution of the Multi-Impact Corporation, a new and innovative concept in global business thinking. The Multi-Impact Corporation is an incorporated business entity with an ambidextrous expansion objective. On the one hand is a territorial expansion drive that seeks to extend the corporation’s reach to new nations, regions and continents while, on the other hand, is the transformative intent to create
impact from one dimension to another within current business environments and in each new territory.
The megatrends of the 21st century indicate an emerging shift in global market preferences in favor of impact-oriented corporations. This unfolding global business environment will witness the evolution of the Multi-Impact Corporation in the same evolutionary context that saw the extinction of the Mercantile Corporation and the emergence of the Multinational Corporation. As the 21st century business frontier, Africa provides a suitable ecosystem for the evolution of the Multi-Impact Corporation. While the
Mercantile Corporation and the Multinational Corporation cumulatively shaped the 20th century Africa, the Multi-Impact Corporation will co-create the 21st century Africa.
Therefore, this resource presents comparative analyses of the three global business models, highlights six impact dimensions of the Multi-Impact Corporation, and draws 14 insights into its evolution from the preceding models. It also introduces the concept of Africa Impact Value as a Service (AIVaaS), a market selection pressure that will facilitate the evolution of the Multi-Impact Corporation.
