Personal history with South Africa and France

I have a company in france that I am selling. I am now looking for a new entrepreneur opportunity in South Africa. I have worked in Cape Town a few years ago (in Paarden Island) and I really want to try my chance there. I am asking the Cap40 group if you know so French or South African Entrepreneur that are selling their company in Cape Town. I will be interested for buying it and invest in CapeTown.

  • Hello,

    Thank you for your quick and positive answer.

    I must be free from my obligations in France in 4 months (time for me to complete the closing of my points of sale). In the meantime I will try to fly in cape town to look around for opportunities. I will be glad to meet you and discuss about your experience and network in CapeTown. I will let you know the dates as soon as I know.

    Do you have access to a data base of business for sale ? maybe french people selling companies for any reason ? 

    Or maybe you have some great ideas to start a business but not the time to implement it ?

    I thank you for you help,

    Best regards,

    Geoffrey MARCADIER
