About the company: CrossBoundary is an investment advisory firm fully dedicated to frontier markets with 50 investment professionals and 7 global offices, of which 4 are in Africa. We support investors and capital seekers on closing transactions through bespoke market studies and validation of their commercial investment case.
Project Description: Our mission is to unlock the power of capital to make a lasting difference in frontier markets. Typically we support investors, such as private equity firms, on their due diligence on companies in Southern Africa - to reduce transaction costs and information asymmetries. We are seeking an intern to lead the day to day execution of a project, with supervision and support from the rest of the team. You would be on the ground, and start where desktop research reaches its limits. Our previous Seed Intern helped a solar home systems company in Mozambique in mapping out its strategic expansion to connect people to electricity for the first time.
