What we do

Investor workshops

Understanding cultures, institutions, business, and the law in Africa in order to minimise risks and secure investments in a sustainable way.

A solutions lab

Adapting investment to African expectations by keeping an open dialogue between investors and more generally stakeholders, as well as pursuing action plans based on annual themes and frequent meetings.

Our values

Our goal is to foster dialogue between Africans and investors and to ensure investors’ projects and aspirations resonate with the values promoted by the African Business Academy.

Through these values we seek to inspire, energise, and help the goals of investors who are active on the continent materialise.
