RISK MITIGATION

We deliver risk mitigation in doing business with Africa. We have created a network of
decision makers across industries in both Africa and the rest of the world to source projects in Africa that our strategic network of investors, project developers, technology vendors, experts, and other professionals collaboratively actualize. We have developed partners that we work with on a suite of projects. No project is too large for us.


We know the risk and cost associated with identifying projects in Africa much less developing and commissioning them and understand how frustrating that is. Firms spend thousands of dollars if not millions trying to do business with Africa and often once they  find a project, they are confronted with other risks such as completion, transaction or find out that the project is not real.


We save you money, time and headaches by working with you in finding right projects because we understand the African business landscape. Our partners on the ground with expertise in the field personally visit these sites to ensure the projects  are real. Even when it comes to negotiations, our partner(s) on the ground will set up the appointments and accompany you to the negotiation table to avoid any misinformation, misunderstandings or run-around. Though we are based in the United States, most members of our management team have lived, done business and retain close ties with Africa and are personally known by prominent African government and business leaders, lawmakers, community and tribal leaders. We have in-depth knowledge of African laws, regulations and culture. Make us your business development partner.
