Mansur Nuruddin, Managing Partner of MNCAA had this to say: “We have been involved in multiple transactions in many sectors across the Continent, including several clean energy and technology transactions, and we believe that WiBA will be a powerful platform to initiate positive conversations and develop concrete solutions. We are excited by the opportunity to partner with RiA on this ground-breaking initiative”.
