Field of interest is Television, a global penetration including Australia, Multi-choice in Africa

Built the first Big Data implementation for News Corp
Access to most hospitals in Sub-Sahara Africa, both public (very poor) and private (very rich). This is a growing field of interest and sphere of investor reach.
Access to an ever growing vertical integration from field-to-fork, with massive amounts of money, and dire need to close the loop between end consumer and producer (farmer) seeking constant behaviour patterns in customer choice in massive supermarkets (checkers, pick n Pay, Woolworths – direct access to CIO) and wholesale stores (Wallmart in Africa) and the smaller but rich supermarkets such as SPAR and Tjoppies across Southern Africa. I have limited direct access to Esselunga ^ Carrefour in Italy but can get to them if I have something serious to offer.

OIL & GAS
Access to this market is still small, but growing fast, in particular to local governments ownerships such as PETROSA, SASOL and operations in Mozambiue, Angola, Ghana, some access to ENI Italy. We are now growing FAST in South America, particular Chile, Argentina, Brazil and Honduras (I already have very high-level and financially strong representation in Honduras).
In Africa Logan apps could be of particular interest, as we are working with some upstrem, midstresm and downstream companies. E..g., we can see how much oil is pumped from the well (drill), how it is transformed into fuel (refinery) and where it is stored (storage & transport ship & pipeline), and as we have access to gas (petrol) station pump manufacturers, can see how much is gas (pertoleum) is put into cars at what hour and at what price for some brand most certainly not all brands (other brands big in Africa is SHELL, BP, TOTAL, PETRONAS, CHEVRON), an ideal app for big data etc. The same applies to some LPG streams.
Access globally to Vodacom HQ, MTN HQ and Board, Telefonica, Teleom Italia Mobile (strategy & technology procurement),
