I have two questions: 1) Is it possible to find an investor willing to invest in a beach property in Liberia, West Africa? 2) Where do I find help for VA certification?


Ignatius Flemister Macon, GA

I have 13 plus acres of beach property in Monrovia, Liberia, but I'm looking for an investor for a partnership.
I also need assistance with acquiring VA certification for my entity (U. S. Global Shipping Inc.) and if possible connections to companies in the same industry.

Seems to me you are going to have to find someone, or some international investment group that is familiar and comfortable with the government, the country' s stability and history; and Laws of Liberia and particularly their Real Property Law.

@ Mr. Tepedino, thanks for the advice on those essential aspects, they will definitely be adhered to. As those aspects must be followed, my question is mainly about how to contact international investors. In furtherance, according to the below website, Africa will become one of the world economic giants in 10 years.

Mr. Flemister-
Thank you for your service!
I can provide you with a resource for helping you get your business certified as either a VOSB or SDVOSB. The guidance changes frequently but your local SBDC/PTAC office should be able to help you with certification as well as connections to teaming partners in your industry. Below is a link to the Macon GA office POCs:

Good luck!
