Thanks to the experience of its senior management and international advisory board in Africa, Asia, Europe and North America, AIDA has designed partnerships, structure and processes to bring together some of the best of companies to Africa, emphasizing rule of law, good governance and operational efficiency. Their combined past successes in structuring transactions has built a broad understanding of business environment and funding mechanisms. AIDA’s local knowledge and extensive African relationships are critical to identify and prioritise a high-quality project pipeline.

AIDA focuses on interdependent projects. Its transactions are triggering the development of downstream impact activities, in agriculture, healthcare and education, to name a few, generating future pipeline deals for itself and its strategic partners. AIDA seeks projects where technology will enable 21st century solutions and leapfrogging the current infrastructure gap.

AIDA’s customers are the projects owners. Its revenues are based on nominal retainers and success fees. To establish long-term commitment with its customers, AIDA also seeks equity ownership in the African projects.

Targets countries are located in the East-West corridor of Southern Africa from Namibia to Mozambique, which offers a huge range of intra-countries infrastructure development initiatives, as well as in the countries in the Gulf of Guinea and Kenya. Both regions contain markets that are rich in minerals and commodities that need access to the international markets through proper infrastructure.
