About us

At Linceus, we have the necessary tools to generate thriving business in AFRICA.

We believe that securing the right investment, coupled with solid guidance, are the two most critical aspects when setting up a profitable practice in this emerging economy.

These are the foundations that will ensure a successful business partnership.

Linceu's network allows unique access into the target markets and presents partners and clients with the opportunity to understand and engage in markets which they previously have found difficult to penetrate.

  • We are interested in securing collaborative, long-term partnerships, with a view to see a project through to fruition.
  • We will break down the mystery of doing business in AFRICA.
  • We can put your ideas & innovations into action by connecting all the dots for you and will maintain a consistent stream of follow-up and support throughout the process.
  • We don’t believe in the supremacy of capital. Alone we are searching for investors who can bring added value to these economies and who are considered high performers in their respective areas of expertise.

Why Africa ?

Africa is inevitably the next chapter. The turnaround for transformation has already started !

This is the place to be…with all its challenges. Let’s go and work hard.
