ACIDCA, a non-profit association based in Lisbon, was established at the end of 2019 with the main objective of identifying the potential of African nations and showing it to the world, in order to attract different investors who want to bet on a continent full of opportunities. In close collaboration with local governments, it develops, promotes and cooperates in different industrial, commercial and cultural initiatives where the maximum expression of African talent is well evident.
ACIDCA considers that much of its intervention consists in highlighting the culture of each country, a necessary condition to attract the interest of investors.

MESSAGE FROM THE
PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD
Looking at the history of Portugal and the experience of the Portuguese over the years, we observe a people thirsting to discover, an entrepreneurial people, a brave people who out of nowhere do an all and that of everything takes nothing. A people who respect their neighbour, a people who want to live, grow, develop. A people who mix, who share, who live and make lives. It was in this spirit of Portuguese that I am, that I proudly remember our history made by this world outside, that I fell in love with this Africa that gave us so much and where we left so much of us.
With the wisdom of our ancestral people, who loved this Africa so much that we love, ACIDCA was born to bring again to the wonderful continent a new force that can open paths and till lands of hope.
We also want ACIDCA to make history, to carry in its lap the energy of progress, innovation, technology, science and to bring with it the beauty of the landscapes mirrored in the faces of new and old, and that with them we can sing, dance and taste their traditions, their arts and make known to the world the nooks of this Africa by many unknown and that has so much to teach and reveal.
Welcome to ACIDCA.
We count on everyone to make Africa the continent of the future - for them and for us.
