Invest in Africa
Invest in Africa (IIA) is a not-for-profit organisation with the vision to create prospering African economies.
In partnership with leading companies from across the continent, IIA does three main things:
Connects multinationals and larger businesses to credible local suppliers (SMEs);
Improves these SMEs access to skills, contracts and finance to build long term capacity; and
Helps improve the investment climate and quality of policy discussions in the country.
Who we are
We are a collaboration of private companies, public bodies and donor organisations that support local African businesses by creating access to markets, skills and finance.
