The African Development Bank has unveiled a new digital platform for the African Investment Forum that connects investors to investment opportunities in Africa.
It also provides up-to-date information and documentation about the deals.
The portal which is known as “The platform” will give Transaction Facilitators and Advisers a space to showcase their professional services to both Investors and Project Sponsors.
Also, the Project Sponsors will be able to provide information on their deals to a wide variety of investors at zero cost, while investors can showcase their product and service offerings, as well as express interest in projects on the platform.
However, the platform is expected to become Africa’s premier digital marketplace and first resort for accessing an eco-system of investment stakeholders, projects and investment services providers.
Apart from promoting centralized deal origination and reducing intermediation costs, The Platform will provide a live database of deals and non-confidential investment opportunities in Africa.
To top it all, it will be a repository of information on investors and technical assistance providers on the continent and will matchmake investors, co-financiers and projects across sectors, instruments, and regions.
Deal flow analytics and investment support services, users access to the training and courses in the ConnectAmericas Academy among others will also be available on the platform.
