Why invest in Africa - NOW?

Africa is a continent of opportunities - with a young population, great entrepreneurial spirit and a vibrant startup-scene.

The image as a continent of corruption, crises and catastrophes that is still widespread in Europe is grossly distorted.

Numerous countries have made astonishing progress in recent years and matured into highly attractive distinations for investors.

Even in the supposedly particularly troubled sub-Saharan region, almost all important key figures are showing a strong upward trend. This is confirmed by figures from the World Bank.

Investments in local projects, startups and enterprises are the best development aid, because they create jobs and contribute to building value chains.
