About us

CbI Meetings was formed in 2013 by Cross-border Information, an experienced Africa and Middle East- focused consultant active in primary infrastructure sectors. Led by experienced regional specialists, CbI works closely with the project development community on issues that affect public and private sector investment decisions.

In 2014 we created the Africa Investment Exchange, a series of international meetings for leading investors in Africa’s high growth industries. Our programme for 2016, will see the launch of a new Investment Exchange series focused on the MENA region.

The agenda for all our Investment Exchange meetings are developed by consultants and analysts at CbI who work closely with the project development community on issues that affect public and private sector investment decisions.

All exchanges are:

•    Held under the Chatham House Rule
•    Structured panel-led discussions and roundtables.
•    Concluded with Africa Hardball – a political risk strategy round table, which examines issues including the capacity of governments to deliver on projects.
•     Hosted at RSA House, the Royal Society of Arts’ historic headquarters in London, an ideal venue for networking, with good breakout spaces and rooms for private meetings.

Our meetings have attracted sponsorship and support from Actis, Africa Finance Corporation, BioTherm Energy, Denham Capital, DLA Piper, Endeavor Energy, FMO, Globeleq, InfraCo Africa, Power Africa, the Business Concil for Africa and the US Chamber of Commerce.
