Our story / What we do / Services
The second opportunity was the lack of experts connecting businesses across Africa directly with the public and private sectors of Scotland (and vice versa). We’ve since changed that!
Scotland and Africa share a magnificent history. Today, ASBN plays a key role in building business bridges and exchanges intra-Africa and with Scotland, whilst using our collaborative approach to shape a prosperous future. Africa and Scotland’s key shared economies of energy, education, training, technology, entrepreneurship and agriculture create massive opportunities, for each other, and for the world.
Realising the tremendous capacity to contribute on a large scale to their birthplaces, Claire and Nicola got to work. They built a brand symbolising unity. They built a Board from Scotland, England and Africa and they wrote a business plan based on legacy thinking. Africa Scotland Business Network was launched to the world from Bowmans Law Firm, South Africa 6th November 2019. The rest as they say, is history!
What we do / Services
Our approach to building and leading this network has helped ASBN attract leading global brands not born in Africa or Scotland. KLM, Air France, Hi-Tec and Zoono are great examples. We are also home to business leaders from Germany, The Netherlands, Australia and USA. What an exciting and truly international place to be!
