Welcome to the MBendi Business website, Africa’s leading business website and one of the world’s top mining, energy and trade websites.
Our services are directed at executive decision makers in business and government. Our aim is to provide enough information to allow you to identify opportunities and do an initial investigation as well as assist you in making the contacts you need to take your project further.
We suggest you subscribe to one or more of our E-mail news and alert services to keep you abreast of developments in your field. From time to time, these will also alert you to potential business opportunities or challenges which you can research on the MBendi Business website.
In some areas MBendi covers topics in impressive detail, in other areas much less so. With regular input from our international visitor community, we expect to continually extend and improve the quality of the information we provide.
On the MBendi Business website, we provide reference profiles at the world, continent and country level, as we also do for many industries and industry sectors. From each of these profiles you can quickly link to related profiles or access our directories for the country or sector.
We provide directories so you can quickly find the companies, organisations and personalities who can assist you in your endeavours, while our directories of projects and facilities are useful for finding business opportunities. Our news and views directory is the main source of the material published in our E-mail newsletters and our publications directory lists potentially useful business reference material. MBendi’s events directory allows you to find conferences and exhibitions taking place around the world.
The MBendi Business website offers several interactive facilities to assist you in finding business partners. Our Finance Application System allows you to apply for corporate, project and trade finance, while our business opportunities, employment, tender and trade lead sections allow you to find or advertise for partners online.
If this is your first visit to our website, then we recommend that you register in order to use the interactive services on our website and to receive our twice monthly newsletter. Your next step should be to add your company and upcoming events to our directories, after first checking to see that someone else has not already done so for you. You can also submit your news releases for potential distribution on our website.
As you can see from our legal notices, we are passionate about security and sticking to legal niceties. We do not publish E-mail addresses on our website, though there are facilities to contact companies by E-mail, and we do not sell or distribute our lists of subscribers or registered users. If you find some of our procedures a little cumbersome, please remember they are there to protect you from spam and misinformation!
