Connecting Worldwide Investors with Business Opportunities in Africa

About Africa for Investors (AFI)

Africa for Investors (AFI) is a unique portal designed to connect global investors and the business community with the vast opportunities available in Africa. With a population of 1.2 billion, Africa offers a substantial consumer market. The continent is home to 30% of the world's mineral reserves, with some minerals exceeding 90% of global reserves. From abundant mineral resources to rich agricultural produce, Africa presents a wealth of opportunities for investment.


Despite its resources, Africa remains at the lower end of the global value chain, with its share of global manufacturing at just 1.9 percent. However, the continent's 62% import rate highlights a significant gap in manufacturing, indicating a ripe opportunity for growth and development. AFI aims to bridge this gap by curating various business opportunities across the continent for global investors. The portal is designed to be dynamic and user-friendly, providing an easy navigation experience for users.


Africa for Investors is your gateway to unlocking the vast potential of Africa's markets and resources, facilitating informed investment and sustainable growth. Join us at and subscribe today to receive relevant opportunity announcements and information.
