Promoting Strategic Investments for Global Development


Global Invest Group is a development consulting organisation. We aim to enable platforms for better engagement of stakeholders to discuss complex global challenges and work together to come up with better ways to respond. We are inspired by a single goal of improving approaches and strategies to enhance effectiveness and capability so as to cope with the 21st century challenges. We focus on economic growth and development, small business growth, investment promotion, public sector development, reforms and public policy. Our belief is that improved engagement of all stakeholders will lead to knowledge dissemination and information sharing which in turn lead to better decisions.

Global Challenges

  • Climate change is the biggest challenge and a growing concern in Africa. This will soon affect business expansion, growth and profitability hence dialogues are important.
  • Many challenges of women empowerment in Africa ranges from their exclusion in the job market, lack of business opportunities and support and exclusion in the education system. Women are thus an untapped resource that could contribute to economic development. Ways to include them in value chain needs to be devised.
  • Africa’s youth, a great asset presenting structural challenges. Among these are youth unemployment, education and entrepreneurial challenges, lack of business support among others. This will soon become a ticking time bomb, thus there is a need for organisation to find innovative ways to respond.
  • Poverty is one of the most challenges affecting Africa and requires experts from all boards to approach the problem from new angles to provide innovative ways to fight African poverty.
  • There is high unemployment rate facing African countries. Big corporates have failed to resolve this challenge and the only hope is with SMMEs. In reality however they are facing numerous challenges and many SMMEs are failing. There are new innovative ways that needs to be discussed and agreed upon so as to support these emergent businesses.

Key Motivation

We provide platforms for engagements that are responsive to current Global Challenges and market risks. Through our collaborative network we provide a unique hub environment for identifying synergies, creating business opportunities, establishing living labs and stimulating innovation and strategic investments for socio-economic development.
