Rwanda is a rising economy located at the crossroads of Central and East Africa, strategically positioned within the East African Community (EAC) market and its 141 million people. An ideal climate, uplands and rolling hills make it one of the most verdant, beautiful parts of the continent, and a key destination for business and tourism within the region. Karisimbi Business Partners was founded in 2009, and is located in the heart of Kigali, the nation’s capital city.
Despite a history scarred by ethnic violence, culminating in the 1994 Rwandan Genocide in which over 800,000 people were massacred, the country has made startling progress since that time, emerged as a regional leader and is determined to create a new legacy for itself.
Rwanda’s bold long-term development vision, articulated in its Vision 20/20 plan, is to raise itself from the depths of poverty by building itself into a competitive, free market economic zone. Evidence of its success and position within the region is manifold, from its year-on-year 7% GDP growth, to its leading World Bank ranking in Business Reform and Ease of Doing Business 2012 Report, to its foreign direct investment of 230 million USD in 2010.
Karisimbi Partners is dedicated to helping African enterprises within Rwanda and the region to realize their full potential.
