Chamber AfriLink Service

Up-to-date Africa Opportunities service at your fingertips!

Have you seen a listing that advertises opportunities in specific markets before?
Have you tried to explore those opportunities and found that it either led to a dead end, or had tens of companies looking at the same opportunity?

Well, our African Opportunities Introductory Service is nothing like that at all!

ETK Group, our specialist Africa Advisers, will provide opportunities to businesses and when three suitable companies have been sourced and contacted, the listing will be removed and save you from a wild goose chase.

We are committed to ensuring that these opportunities lead to sales!

The service provides the following:
 
1. Strategic Planning - ETK develops a unique, tailor-made strategy for each country, sector, product or service which is centered on the client’s goals and objectives. They put your export plans in focus for Africa – and tie these strategic plans to financial targets.
 
The export plans have received extremely favourable reviews from  clients and include, but are not limited to the following details:

  • Market Analysis & Product/Service Suitability
  • Regulatory Framework/Licensing
  • Risk Mitigation

2. Trade & Project Finance Advice: ETK has a range of partners willing to give you advice on trade and project finance products that are available and can also give guidance on how you can get paid as well as implement collections in-country, on the rare occasion that there are problems with payments.

3. Market Visits – Your potential buyer could come to the UK or you can go out to Africa depending on the country, size of the order and the overall potential of the opportunity. ETK will be with you (even in-country) every step of the way. They can also provide the follow-up and follow through so that you feel you have a team ‘on-the-ground’ representing your interests.
