Our Story

With Africa deeply embedded in our roots, the ABiQ team is made up of highly experienced individuals who are committed to supporting the growth of the African economy.

What we do

At ABiQ, we identify, profile, and track large projects in the “built environment” across Africa and the Middle East. Whether it is a hospital under construction in Kenya, a new mine being planned in Ivory Coast, a new oil platform in Nigeria, or a new rail line in Egypt: we have it on our platform. We provide information about the projects (Facilities) themselves, involved organisations (Organisations), and people (People). Furthermore, we aggregate data (Markets) on market activity, current and future product/service demand, cash flow, as well as framework conditions. Ever wondered what the market size for HVAC solutions in your target country is? Or how much steel Egypt will need in 3 years from now? Or maybe you’re more interested in its power demand? Based on our AI we provide answers to all these questions, and much more.

For whom we do it

Our Subscribers are global suppliers of products and services for these projects. Their portfolios range from steel, and control systems, to high-tech machinery, financing, and logistics solutions. As such a supplier, we equip you with the meaningful leads, opportunities, and direction you need to grow your business in the region.

For already involved stakeholders of these projects, our platform provides an opportunity to showcase achievements and references, as well as to present themselves to the world’s best suppliers.

How we do it

We have a solid team of on-the-ground researchers sourcing and validating data. We gather insights from trusted secondary sources, as well as from direct interaction with market and project stakeholders.

We develop our clever algorithms, or AI as it’s more commonly known, to analyze market growth rates and identify areas of opportunity for businesses to thrive.
