Option A – AFSIC African Investments Dashboard

This is a closed dashboard accessible where investment opportunities can be viewed principally by registered institutional investors in our network. You are welcome to upload your investment opportunity onto our AFSIC African Investments Dashboard at no cost. This Dashboard is specifically focused on higher end investment opportunities with a profit track record, or management team with experience.  Investors search the Dashboard for investment opportunities matching their investment criteria and can communicate directly with you if they find your opportunity of interest. The advantage of this Option is that it is FREE. The downside is that you rely on investors logging in to our Dashboard and actively searching for and finding your investment opportunity.

Option B – Africa Business Opportunities Dashboard

This is an open dashboard accessible to any internet user interested in business and investment in Africa. Example business opportunities can be viewed here. Use our Africa Business Opportunities Dashboard to build up your investee or client’s profile globally and across Africa in anticipation of a capital raise or so that our global users and members of our Africa Business Community can easily locate you. You can promote your investee or client company and view other members of our Africa Business Community here.

Once you have signed up you are welcome to upload any number of  investment opportunities and “calls for business” onto our Africa Business Opportunities Dashboard at no cost. Selected business opportunities are circulated to our extensive global network. Investors, and other interested parties, search the Dashboard for investment opportunities that match their investment criteria and can communicate directly with you if they find your opportunity of interest. The advantage of this Option is that it is FREE. The downside is that requires users and members of our Africa Business Community to logon to our Dashboard, and then to actively search and find your investment or business opportunity on our Dashboard.
