After a lot of brainstorming, thinking and dreaming. After thorough market research. After dozens of appointments, we criss-cross the country. After visiting mega fairs in both the Netherlands and Germany and therefore many blisters later. After various internships to gain experience and knowledge. After building a large network of people from all parts of the world. After a lot of typing, calculating, thinking and reading. After visiting companies of all shapes and sizes. After having patience, LOTS of patience. After many consultations with suppliers, manufacturers, accountants and notaries. After searching and selecting all the necessary equipment and machines. After some 14,000 kilometers on the road. After many conversations, sparring and meetings with the investors.
After this and many other things, we have now almost reached the end of this period. Just a little while and we will start a new period in Ethiopia. It’s nice to be able to look back on everything we have experienced and even more exciting what is yet to come. On to a new period, a new chapter in our lives and so special to know that He describes it!
This photo was taken by (hopefully) our future raw material supplier from Pakistan. Taken at the Interpack fair in Düsseldorf where we attended last weekend. In addition to this photo, we have placed more photos of our preparation for Ethiopia in our web album .
