    NAIROBI (Reuters) - Africa's richest man, Nigerian Aliko Dangote, plans to invest $400 million in a cement plant in Kenya, the east African nation's president's office said.
    Dangote owns various businesses under the umbrella company of Dangote Group, among them, Dangote Cement, which said in May it was investing $5 billion to build cement plants on the African continent.

    Although it wouldn't be an exact science, one could use the American business history as a time machine of sorts to track the most successful business ventures then duplicate that model in the emerging African markets.
