The Foreign Desk

When José Eduardo Dos Santos first came to power in Angola, Jimmy Carter was president of the US and Leonid Brezhnev was leader of the Soviet Union. Some 37 years later Dos Santos’s grip on power remains as strong as ever. Next year he will once again lead his party, the MPLA, into elections that he will surely win. But as the oil-dependent economy crumbles and the crackdown intensifies, will ordinary Angolans find a way to fight back?

The Entrepreneurs

Failure is an experience that no entrepreneur wants to encounter, yet one that pretty much every one will. This week we explore what happens when your luck runs out and the best ways to bounce back. Mark Jennings is the founder of Shaken Cocktails, a cocktail-subscription start-up. Shaken, however, no longer exists, having shipped their final box back in June. The company had a growing customer base, secured promising deals with spirits brands and went through a number of successful funding rounds. So what made the company go under? And what did Mark learn from the experience?
