Education

Technology is now at the forefront of Africa’s education system which has deteriorated over the years.

Healthcare

Access to healthcare in Africa remains a challenge in the region and also with the transitioning to technology.


Financial Services

The future of Africa’s financial services would involve digital technology, less customer interface and automating back-end operations .


Food value chain

We believe the agriculture sector in Africa forms a significant portion of 17 economies of all 54 sectors.


Logistics and Mobility

The deficit in transportation and the limited availability of means of transportation in Africa creates an opportunity for more.

Energy

Despite the crash in global oil & gas prices, we believe that any long-term investment in this sector will remain fruitful for the next 100 yrs.



Industrials

Africa is positioned to be the world’s next industrial centre with low labour cost, a growing skilled labour force.

TMTP

The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a high demand for technology solutions and a surge in the consumption of digital content.


Infrastructure

The housing deficit is high in the African Continent due to its high population growth, urbanization, rising cost and poor planning.
