Private Equity, although it is gaining exposure in Africa, remains relatively unknown. It is for this reason that the fund management company Advanced Finance & Investment Group (“AFIG Funds”) based in Senegal, and operating on a large part of the continent, has introduced the concept of the” AFIG Funds Business Breakfasts”.

The objective is to bring together heads of companies operating in different sectors in a friendly setting and outside of the formalism of traditional meetings, in order to present AFIG Funds, the management company, ACRF the first fund it manages, and discuss the opportunities offered by Private Equity.

The open conversations that take place over the Breakfasts are often opportunities for business leaders to take stock of the alternative to traditional funding solutions, namely Private Equity, which can be a true ally in their companies’ growth efforts.
