  • AFSIC African Investments Dashboard. Access to review investment opportunities uploaded to this Dashboard is restricted to institutional investors managing third party funds only (e.g. private equity funds etc). This portal is more appropriate for companies seeking finance which:
    • Have a strong management team with demonstrated track record
    • Are not start-ups, concepts or ideas

For earlier stage companies or those with limited track record we advise you to first post a Business Opportunity on our Africa Business Opportunity Dashboard. This Dashboard is open to global viewers and could give your investment opportunity good prominence.
