Invest Africa offers a number of travel opportunities throughout the year that gives members unrivalled access to industry heads, senior government officials and local entrepreneurs.
Trips are liaised with a partnering government and the British Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Around the advertised schedule we will work with each investor to schedule proprietary meetings focused on their industry of interest.
The value-add of our travel offering lies not just in the introductions made within a particular country, but the time spent along-side other Invest Africa members who have complementary interests in the chosen country and/or sector.
- Access to 2-3 Field Trips per year
- Invest Africa organized accommodation, logistics and visas
- High level meetings with local governments, investors and entrepreneurs
- Small, focused group of like minded investors on each trip
