Rendeavour tours U.S. to attract suppliers
Rendeavour, Africa’s largest urban land developer, announces a Business Matchmaking tour to the United States that aims to attract American exporters and service providers to the company’s satellite city projects which will house over 500,000 people and major companies in Africa over the next 20 years.
With over 30,000 acres of satellite community developments in Kenya, Ghana, Nigeria, Zambia and Democratic Republic of Congo, Rendeavour’s American shareholders are eager to ensure U.S. companies are aware of business opportunities in Africa and participate in Rendeavour’s procurement processes.
Rendeavour plans to source approximately $500 million in American products and services over the next five years, with an additional $1.5 billion projected in the years to follow. Rendeavour’s commercial mission is to “Buy American” for its projects, enhance the quality of its developments and increase American exports to sub-Saharan Africa and bi-lateral trade in key sectors.
The Business Matchmaking tour focuses on four sectors: ICT and Smart Community Technology, Renewable Energy, Construction, Security Systems and Healthcare Facilities.
“If your business operates in these sectors and wants to export its product or service to Africa with a trusted partner, we want to meet you,” said Preston Mendenhall, Rendeavour’s Head of Corporate Affairs, who will be leading the tour.
The tour will stop in five U.S. cities:
New York: April 5
Los Angeles: April 7
Kansas City, MO: April 11
Miami: April 12
Washington, DC: April 13
Rendeavour has invited U.S. companies operating in these sectors to pre-qualify for one-on-one meetings with Rendeavour management by submitting a cover letter and presentation (or summary) of their business by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
