Invest Africa, a prominent business platform promoting trade and investment in Africa, has partnered with global corporate intelligence and cybersecurity consultancy, S-RM, as both companies seek to help build resilient businesses across Africa.
The partnership will see Invest Africa combining S-RM’s expertise in intelligence and strategic support with its own well-established network to empower business leaders and investors in critical decision-making processes.
The increasing reliance on digital technologies in Africa, coupled with the evolving regulatory, business, political, ESG, and cyber threat landscapes, shows the need for cyber resilience in fostering sustainable economic growth. As the trusted entry point to business in Africa, Invest Africa anticipates benefiting from S-RM’s rapid and carefully sourced insights on integrity and operational risks to guide business decisions and policies.
The one-year partnership will involve a comprehensive program of activities, aligning with S-RM’s key objectives both on the continent and globally. Initiatives include Invest Africa’s 11th Annual Mining Series in Cape Town, where S-RM will be featured as the company’s Strategic Intelligence Partner. S-RM’s primary focus in this collaboration is to provide Invest Africa’s member network with industry-leading intelligence, resilience, and response solutions.
With a permanent presence on the African continent for nearly two decades and over 50 practitioners currently on the ground, S-RM is well-positioned to support Invest Africa’s members in all aspects of their Africa-related decision-making.
CEO of Invest Africa, Chantelé Carrington, was enthusiastic about the partnership, stating, “we are pleased to partner with S-RM to provide rapid on-the-ground intelligence to our network, and to support our overarching mission to play a central and influential role in Africa’s socio-economic growth.”
Head of Corporate Intelligence, EMEA, S-RM, Ian Massey, also noted that “S-RM is excited to partner with Invest Africa to help investors unlock opportunities across Africa.”
