From Botswana Michelle Adelman

Michelle Adelman is the managing director of Accite Holdings Pty Ltd/Langdon Organic Pty Ltd as well as a country and regional winner in the Business and Professional Services sector in the SADC South region. Accite is a boutique project development and private capital firm focused on investing in technology-led, sustainable projects that create economic diversification and youth employment. Accite’s investment philosophy marries proven technologies with localised business models to create pioneering businesses. The combination of best-in-class technology, international experience and a focus on local youth development significantly de-risks projects and creates a new attractive asset class for foreign investors into Africa, says Michelle. Based in Botswana, she has made a strategic and financial commitment to hire only young Batswana into her organisation and places them in critical management positions.
