SA Investment Atlas (i-Atlas) is a portal that allows different stakeholders in the investment promotion and economic development industry to collaborate in showcasing investment opportunities throughout South Africa to potential investors in a manner that fast track the closing of the deal.
Our mission is to facilitate job-creating business investment into South Africa and raise awareness of the critical role that foreign and domestic investment (FDI) plays in the South African economy.

As an independent national platform promoting investment opportunities in South Africa, SA Investment Atlas provides national, provincial and municipal governments through their respective development agencies and departments to increase coordination and provide a one-stop-widow on investment opportunities in South Africa.

The i-Atlas provides guidance and information to respond to specific and broad-reaching issues that affect business investment decisions.

Through its i-Atlas Portal, GROWTHMAP INFONOMICS collaborates with Economic Development Organisations (EDOs) to help address investor questions and concerns relating to a wide range of existing opportunities and regulatory issues.

This i-Atlas assists economic development organizations / investment promotion agencies to compete globally for investment by providing up-to-date information, a platform for targeted marketing, and high-level advocacy.

This i-Atlas also helps companies of all sizes find the information they need to make decisions, connect to the right people at the local level, and navigate the national regulatory system.
