African Partner tool- Connect with African Businesses
The African Partner Pool connects local businesses to international companies, helping investors identify suitable local partners.
Companies working in Africa need local businesses to supply them with products and services. But these companies struggle to find local suppliers that can deliver to the standards needed, while local businesses struggle to raise their profile and be seen by such international investors.
The African Partner Pool is a directory that brings local and independently validated businesses together into one place. The directory allows investors and purchasers to filter through local suppliers based on key criteria to find credible business partners. Find out more or click here to register as a purchaser.
Using this directory, local suppliers can promote their businesses and increase their chances of winning contracts. By submitting their credentials to the African Partner Pool, businesses in Africa can demonstrate to a host of international companies the standards they can deliver to. This initiative also allows local businesses to access the training and support of Invest in Africa Partners, helping them raise these standards. Find out more or click here to feature your business.
The African Partner Pool launches in January 2014 in Ghana. The African Partner Pool will expand into other markets in Africa. If you are a supplier not based in Ghana, please register here for updates.
