Essential intelligence on Africa and the Middle East

CbI Meetings was formed in 2013 to bring leading public and private sector figures together to discuss the changing political landscape and emerging investment trends in Africa and the Middle East.

In 2014 we created the Africa Investment Exchange, a series of international meetings for leading investors in Africa’s high growth industries.

The agenda for all our Investment Exchange meetings are developed by consultants and analysts at CbI who work closely with the project development community on issues that affect public and private sector investment decisions.

As a consultant, rather than a traditional conference or events producer, CbI has a unique perspective when it comes to understanding the themes and topics that provide the foundations for a vibrant agenda and the mix of project stakeholders required to create a lively and engaging panel-led discussion.

We are focused on producing meetings that create enduring dialogues between development finance institutions and other established investment sources as well as non-traditional investors including, private equity firms, venture capitalists, family offices, foundations, institutional investors and impact investors.

To facilitate discussion, all our investment exchanges are  held under the Chatham House Rule and structured round panel-led discussions and roundtables.

Our meetings have attracted sponsorship and support from Actis, Africa Finance Corporation, AIIM, BioTherm Energy, DEG, Denham Capital, DLA Piper, Endeavor Energy, Engie, FMO, Globeleq, InfraCo Africa, Joule Africa, Lekela, Lumos, Power Africa, Themis and Winch Energy.
