Our relationships

What our users are saying

  • Orbitt is the go-to resource for tapping into opportunities across the African continent especially in countries that weren't on our radar.

  • Orbitt has a different value proposition, where bankers can track solutions that are dedicated and focused on Africa. Orbitt provides us with access to investor networks that either weren’t based within our geography or we otherwise wouldn’t have come across.

  • The close relationship and involvement of Orbitt calling, checking-in and making introductions to actual investors that are focused on Africa, makes it a winning platform for me.

  • We strongly believe that Orbitt has brought a solution that will revolutionize the modalities of the deal cycle. We at Miradi Capital would like to be part of that revolution and disruption. We therefore look forward to working together.
