AFRINVEST: Investor Data

Project “Dashboard for Investors in Africa Subsahara”

The project was done in a series of students research courses and aimed to enable easy access to the essential key performance indicators in selected countries of sub-Saharan Africa. The final version provides for a fictional group of investors a decision basis for fast and qualitative correct assessment of the opportunities in Africa. On the basis of existing data mainly from the World Bank, African Development Bank and the World Economic Forum key performance indicators to evaluate the potential for investments have been defined and various prototypes of dashboards where implemented. As a result of the project a set of key performance indicators to support the needs of investors were defined and implemented as an executable dashboard.
