Chasing Black Unicorns

How building the Amazon of Africa
made me a terrorist

Marek Zmysłowski

Wolf of Wall Street meets Indiana Jones. “Chasing Black Unicorns” is a memoir of one of the most recognized Polish internet entrepreneurs, Marek Zmysłowski. Witty and humorous, although it describes real, often dangerous events. Before moving to Nigeria to build the Amazon of Africa, Zmysłowski was an early employee of one of the biggest Polish financial services company, and the founder of many online ventures in Eastern Europe. While building the first nationwide network of funeral services, he had to face the Polish mafia. His businesses in Nigeria made him also some powerful enemies, who corrupted the police and government officials against him. Overnight Marek became an international fugitive on the run and was put on the most wanted list by Interpol, an organisation with a history of abuse by corrupted regimes. Zmysłowski describes this and many other events and puts them in the context of African history and cultures, a continent he fell in love with.
