About us

Sub-Saharan Africa Development Enterprises (SSADE) is a U.S. based, black-owned infrastructure development and finance brokerage services-focused consulting firm that delivers high impact interventions designed to favorably transform clienteles’ businesses. We assist U.S. multi-national corporations, small and medium sized companies, NGOs and public organizations to achieve exemplary efficiencies in Sub-Saharan Africa (“SSA”) through reliable multi-channel connections, well- calibrated strategic deliverables and customized solutions. We are affiliated with Igbanugo Partners Int’l Law Firm, PLLC, which focuses on two practice areas: U.S. Immigration & Nationality Law and International Trade Law in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Africa is now “in play,” and no region of the world offers more untapped resources and opportunities for U.S. businesses than SSA. Africa’s growing importance is also reflected in the massive efforts by the U.S., EU, China, Russia, India, some Middle Eastern nations and other countries to gain access to the vast mineral resources with which she is abundantly endowed.

In SSA, we concentrate in: strategic communications, media relations, trade and investment management, government relations, public affairs, crisis communications, image management, and corporate social responsibility. We are a formidable proponent for our clients in this region because we are able to deploy personnel who are either nationals of or specialists in the countries about which we consult. We practice the highest standards of ethical behavior in all our lines of endeavor. We maintain a wide network of affiliations with organizations and individuals at both local and national levels throughout SSA, which fosters our ability to provide our services with the utmost cultural fluency and sensitivity.

With nearly 1 billion inhabitants who have urgent needs for education, environmental protection, clean water, clothing, financial services, modernized agriculture, demand for maximum food production and food security, improved healthcare services, critical energy sufficiency, low cost housing, state of the art telecommunications, effective transportation, demand for tourism development, permanent end to tribal conflicts and stable governments, SSA has in recent times been dubbed the new land of opportunities.

Bolstered by new support in Washington D.C. as well as the current wave of economic and mostly democratic political transformation sweeping across SSA, bilateral trade between the U.S. and SSA has increased exponentially. We collaborate with other consulting firms to offer clients the depth, dimension and experience they need to innovate and grow in SSA. We see a future full of opportunity and work fervently with our clients to develop executable strategies that help them unlock value in unexpected places.

We have successfully created a niche in connecting U.S. businesses with high profile executives, government officials and individuals across SSA governments, businesses and industries in this unique region where who you know always matters more than what you know. In a rapidly changing world, we realize that a commitment to strong partnering relationships remains a crucial element of conducting business. It is this spark that helps us burn brighter than our competition. Finally, our cultural competency is a powerful tool that enables us to accomplish effective customized solutions, sustainable improvements and measurable interventions for our clients.
