Welcome to Travel & Invest Africa, where education through travel meets the world of investment. Our journey began with a vision to bridge the gap between global investors and the diverse, dynamic opportunities that Africa has to offer. We believe that informed decisions are the key to unlocking the immense potential on the continent.

Our Mission

Africa is a continent of uncharted potential, with untapped opportunities that offer exceptional returns on investment. It is a place where innovation thrives, where natural resources are abundant, and where a young and rapidly growing population is driving economic growth.

About Our Co-Founder

How it Started...

I am a seasoned entrepreneurial leader with expertise in developing strategic growth visions for companies. My focus lies in optimizing business operations and overcoming bottlenecks in business processes, resulting in significant cost savings for technology-driven organizations.

Over the span of more than 18 years, I have achieved tangible outcomes for various sectors, including finance, utilities, local and federal government, nonprofit organizations dedicated to advocacy, and emerging technology companies. Through my approach, I have successfully eliminated time-consuming activities, resulting in total cost savings exceeding $25 million and streamlining over 100 business processes.

In 2019, I expanded my company’s portfolio to include the travel industry by launching an exclusive travel service called Travel & Invest Africa. This unique service is designed to promote responsible travel in Africa, encourage investments in local economies, and preserve indigenous cultures. Our company specifically invests in four sectors: Agriculture, Blockchain/Web 3, Manufacturing, and Real Estate.

To date, our company, NLEI, has welcomed and catered to investors with a keen interest in Nigeria. Through their experiences, they have discovered opportunities to drive economic empowerment by creating jobs and preserving culture through responsible tourism.

I am particularly proud of the achievements we have made in Africa, as it represent the perfect amalgamation of my strategic leadership skills in business operations and my passion for making a positive impact and establishing a sustainable legacy.

One of my favorite quotes encapsulates our approach: “We strive to facilitate growth while ensuring a sustainable legacy.” – Stephanie Nelson
