We help Africa-focused governments and private sector organisations:
To connect Africa to the world by using compliance and risk management to accelerate investment, trade and economic development across the continent.
Despite being home to the highest rate of entrepreneurship globally, Africa is the region most deprived of the funding needed to scale its innovative solutions.
VC funding is up 5x since 2019
Africa has 5x Unicorn growth since 2019
Africa will have 40% of global population by 2050
ACFTA will boost GDP by $450bn
African founders sometimes lack knowledge about risk mitigation standards and key compliance requirements from investors
The regulatory environment is rife with fraudulent documents, hampering access to reliable due diligence information
Finding reputable startups and finance partners committed to transparency and high compliance standards can be challenging
Lack of compliance can put your organisation and clients at risk of financial crime and other breaches that could result in regulatory fines and reputational damage.
A robust compliance management programme can help you gain a better understanding of your organisation, enabling you to improve operational control and ultimately increase profits.
Achieving compliance enhances the confidence of your customers and other stakeholders.
We provide services aimed at helping businesses work with or partner with African entities where complex and unique compliance challenges exist. We help to create a more conducive environment for business and trade.
