Who we are

Global Investors Konnection (GIK Africa)
We are entrepreneurs with MBAs and Computer Science degrees who spent many years abroad. It came to our notice that too many people who want to do business are stuck in the West by a lack of information and/or opportunities. We decided to provide an online platform for the exchange of business ideas and experiences, so people can safely discuss their projects and enter into partnerships to invest in businesses abroad as well as in their home countries.

OUR VISION
Our vision is to help as many Africans as possible to realize their dreams in the continent, create business and employ people locally. The Aim is to achieve financial actualization. This is in line with the United Nation Vision GOAL 17: Global Partnerships to achieve the Goal.

GIK Africa was founded in 2023 in order to connect local African entrepreneurs with private or corporate investors. This platform will facilitate exchange between those with ideas and those which money. People often see their dream die because of lack of resources or lack of information. So, we want to connect the two critical factors in the development and growth of businesses, in order to facilitate individuals or corporate entities, purchasing lands in the part of Africa of their choices, investing in a startup, or engaging in agricultural projects; or simply, to enter into business partnerships.

GIK Africa is a membership-only online organization. Only those who have become fully registered members can access our services of exchanging ideas and information with other members (private and corporate); who share the same interests and passions. Once you find a match, then, you can connect directly with your counterpart and take the discussion to the next level.

Projects and Research
GIK Africa’s in-house Team of Experts, will do diligent research in order to determine how viable a project is before it gets to be listed on our roaster for potential investors and/or partners. Projects listed on GicAfrica Roaster, are those judged by our in-house Team of Experts as potentially viable, and therefore, open to potential investors and partnerships.
