The Global African Investment Summit
The summit is a meeting place for global investors and public and private sector African project owners.
TGAIS is organized by DMG Events and funded by various sponsors, including British Airways, DLA Piper, and PwC.
Paul Sinclair, TGAIS Event Director, explains: ‘’ Since the 2014 October event, the Summit has resulted in over 60 bilateral meetings between investors and African governments and transactions have taken place. We have seen investors make commitments to go in country to broker partnerships and we are aware that MOUs and deals have been signed.”
TGAIS was held in London in 2014 and 2015.
1,350 investors attended the 2015 TGAIS in London, with a combined net investment pool of USD425b to be deployed in Africa.
As a result, over 12 projects have been agreed with governments in hydro-power, agriculture, housing and roads, and over 600 investors have been directly engaged with the African public and private sector.
Eytan Stibbe, Founding Partner of Vital Capital Limited, among the attendees of TGAIS 2015, said: “We invest in other developing countries with the intention to bring their knowledge and operations into Africa, such as renewable energy, sewage and waste water treatment.”
In 2016, in addition to London, the summit will be held in Kigali, Rwanda.
TGAIS London 2016 will take place in November 2016 to connect global investors with African private and public sector project and business owners, alongside government ministers, CEOs of state-owned enterprises, and multiple African heads of state.
