Visiting Associate, XCOM Africa GmbH, Willich, Germany
Peter Koch is currently finishing his undergraduate degree in international business administration at Fulda University of Applied Sciences in Germany. He spent nearly one year in Kenya and East Africa, including a placement at the German Embassy in Nairobi, where he worked closely together with the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. His research interests are the emerging economies in Africa, and in this respect the potential for German small and medium-sized companies (SMEs).
Since the end of 2012, Koch has been working with a business consultancy specialized in Sub-Saharan Africa, where he is writing his thesis on the potential opportunities for German SMEs in East Africa.
