Exclusive invitation to participate in unique investment opportunities.


We are Partner of the Africa Trade and Investment Global Summit (ATIGS).

Over the past 10 years, African countries have registered high growth rates and have mastered the global economic crisis rather favorably compared to other emerging economies. The long term risk adjusted returns are competitively advantaged vis-a-vis the developed countries and are relatively on par with frontier markets.
PULSAR Development has developed a new and innovative holding concept to support the future needs of growing African economies and are inviting partners to participate in funds under management for the First African Investment Holding.

For this particular invitation, the rationale is to develop a technology hub to target and capitalize on European high tech companies, realizing high growth synergies between investee companies and African growth markets. Over the last decades, a substantial lack of collaboration between African economies/Governments and European technology companies have become obvious.

Bridging this untapped gap, the 1st African Investment Holding will create substantial future growth by applying strict investment criteria and providing a vast sales network within Africa. Only companies with high performance potential in the African region will be considered as investment targets. Investment examples are suppliers of reliable PicoPV systems and robust water purification solutions, etc.
