InvestRural is a South African initiative committed to improving the livelihoods of rural people. Conceived by some of South Africa’s top business people and endorsed by the National House of Traditional and Khoi-San Leaders, it is a culmination of business expertise, a passion for humankind, and a love for this unique yet careworn country.
We bring together Traditional Communities with those who have the capacity, expertise and resources to drive social and economic development. Our aim is to redirect the attention of all stakeholders towards the needs and opportunities in rural areas.
There is a vast, untapped market for investment in rural communities. We work with traditional communities and other stakeholders to identify high potential sectors, create the conditions needed to enable development, and translate rural challenges into investible opportunities.
