Invest Africa is a fast-growing networking organization based in London and New York that delivers on the demand for high quality relationships within growing African markets.
The primary aim of the organization is to bring the African success story to the forefront of people’s attention in order to encourage direct investment. Our members come from diverse backgrounds - some are African entrepreneurs with existing companies, others are new investors looking to participate in budding African economies.
Through a unique position in European, American and African markets, Invest Africa is able to leverage its extensive network to provide our members with relevant, engaging speakers at regular events as well as enviable access to entrepreneurial businesses. Invest Africa was established by Rob Hersov, a London-based South African entrepreneur and senior executive, in May 2013.
We hope that by aligning ourselves with a successful and competitive crew on such a global challenge, Invest Africa can project the continent’s competitive spirit and eagerness to succeed.
We are honored for our yacht to be associated with the Sapinda Rainbow Project and Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund. The partnership is unique within the Clipper Race community and we hope to facilitate their goals in every stopover of the race.
Sailing round the world is a big challenge and I’m proud to have been chosen as a skipper for the Clipper Race.
