What we offer for you


Consulting and know-how

From project idea to concrete implementation: our experts will advise you on the implementation of your project and support you in choosing the ideal project partner - for example, in the context of inter-company training or strengthening local suppliers.


Financial support

Whether it is the construction or equipping of training centres or an access road to an industrial area - let us discuss your ideas and help you with the appropriate financing to overcome possible investment obstacles.


Exciting business contacts

Get to know interesting business partners: we support you in establishing business relationships with African SMEs and decision-makers in local markets.


Promoting sustainable business activities

Sustainability is becoming more and more important for companies. We can support you in establishing digital, low-emission and resource-efficient business models on the ground. In addition, we provide targeted support to companies in new ‘green’ sectors, such as renewable energies and the circular economy. Together, we can thus create future-proof jobs and company structures.


Empowering women in the private sector

Women contribute to a modern, diverse and resilient corporate culture that helps companies achieve greater economic success. We promote women managers and entrepreneurs with measures tailored specifically to them and their companies, for example management training and access to financing options. In addition, we provide companies with support in training women specialists. Together, we can thus create more and better jobs for women and a successful corporate environment.
