The African Chamber of Commerce in Scandinavia (ACCS) in partnership with Aido Network International (Aido) are pleased to announce a Business-to-Business Programme (B2B) and USD 30 million in funding for Small and Medium Size Enterprises across Africa

ACCS’ mission is to promote business and investment opportunities between Africa and the Nordic countries and through this partnership, ACCS will utilise its experience and network of both the Nordic international markets to facilitate investment in agriculture, renewable energy, tourism, mining, manufacturing, healthcare, digital and ICT, waste management and housing.

The CEO of ACCS, Cinthia, Lois TA

“I’m very pleased with the ACCS-AIDO partnership as well as the upcoming ACCS-AIDO Business and Investment Forum. Together, we will build and reinforce the private sector in Africa, support sustainable development and improvements in living standards across the continent. 

The Aido Chairperson Paul Eganda says

“Early stage support is lacking but very much needed across the communities that we represent. The people within our communities have ideas, knowledge and drive but lack the financing and support to make their ideas viable and attractive for large-scale investment. The establishment of the B2B programme and fund is a demonstrable commitment by ACCS to do business and development differently by walking with us along the journey from idea through development and onto prosperity. Our partnership with ACCS and the wider Nordic community will empower us to build the Africa that we want.”
