|Chasing Black Unicorns: How building the Amazon of Africa put me on Interpol's Most Wanted list
Silicon Valley meets Indiana Jones – Chasing Black Unicorns is an autobiography written by Marek Zmyslowski, one of Poland’s most respected internet entrepreneurs. Witty and humorous, the book covers many dramatic and often dangerous events. Before moving to Nigeria to set up the ‘Amazon of Africa’, Zmyslowski worked for one of Poland’s biggest financial services companies, and is the founder of many online ventures in Central Europe. While establishing the first, online network of funeral services in Poland, he had to overcome challenges from criminal gangs running the market sector. His businesses in Nigeria have also made him enemies, powerful individuals who have corrupted police and government officials to stand against him. Overnight, Marek became an international fugitive and was put on the most wanted list by Interpol, an organization with a history of being manipulated by corrupt regimes. Zmyslowski describes this and many other events, putting them in the context of African history and cultures, a continent he is now deeply in love with.
