Investment News supporting wealth and well being

By Samuel Rubinstein


This week’s featured event:


Andrea Pizziconi, through her company The Christie Company and Africa Integras, has been quietly working on reshaping Africa through mixed land use and building the infrastructure of higher education. She invested early-risk capital into the development of mixed-use university communities, bringing affordable financing structures to higher education and providing an impact investment opportunity.

Andrea is an accomplished singer, urban developer and true social entrepreneur. Where others talk, she has been a powerhouse in getting things done. Most important, she has always supported others who needed help, irrespective of her own situation. She has been a strong supporter of TBLI and our work Andrea is brilliant, funny, kind, generous, a raconteur and most of all a great soul that spreads love and generosity, wherever she goes. Always speaking the radical truth. Congrats.


TBLI has created an announcement channel in telegram (messaging app) for those who would like to receive regular updates from TBLI and not be followed by Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook. Much better system and this will avoid duplicate postings. To join click here
