We work with strategic partners in Scotland, enabling us to directly connect our members with relevant individuals, companies, government and commercial opportunities.

In Africa:

Africa is a majestic, beautiful continent. It’s also enormous, complex and culturally diverse. Businesses looking to export or grow into Africa must skilfully navigate its scale and complexity to achieve success. This prospect, while exciting, can also be daunting … This is where we come in. Spanning the continent, our network will actively assist you by providing significant industry and geographical expertise, market knowledge and trusted industry contacts. Therefore, ensuring the smoothest possible business interaction and transactions.

Connecting the unique spirit of Scotland and Africa

ASBN was born out of a need for a diverse, proactive business network across Africa and to connect business people in Africa and Scotland directly and meaningfully. 

The network’s role is extended into facilitating business exchange for members and partners between the two lands. Scotland and Africa have many shared economies including education, tech, training, agriculture, agri tech and energy…. The opportunities to share, learn and work together are immense.
