Afribiz Invest is a pan-African investment company investing in the continent’s strategic sectors, with a focus on infrastructural space.
Founded in 2005, the company has a diversified portfolio that creates an optimal balance between investment return and future growth for stakeholders.
The company understands capital as a scarce resource to be efficiently allocated. They therefore take an active role in the management of their portfolio companies, to ensure growth and preservation of their investments. “Our focus is on building businesses for long-term sustainable growth and not a quick exit,” says Collen Mashawana, founder of Afribiz Invest.
Afribiz Invest along with the subsidiary companies Solid State Power, Kunene Makopo Risk Solutions and Tshepang Electrical will help to build houses for the disadvantaged families. Last year Afribiz Invest built 15 houses; this year Afribiz Invest has a target to build 30 houses for disadvantaged families.
“We cannot entirely succeed on our own, but being on our own will stop us from attempting to change peoples lives,” adds Mashawana.
Afribiz Invest has, over the past week, opened 3 houses in Hammanskraal and Mamelodi with the hand over conducted by Premier Makhura.
