Website Redesign + new logo : Request for proposal

Introduction
Invest Africa has initiated a Request for Proposal (RFP) process to identify a vendor qualified to plan, execute and deliver the redesign of IA’s website ([url removed, login to view])
IA requires a vendor who has demonstrated experience in managing website projects and expertise with best practices regarding successful website design, development, and deployment.

About Invest Africa
IA is a volunteer run organization started in 2011 to raise funds, via a crowdfunding platform, for African enterprises caught in the gap between microfinance and traditional banking. With traditional banks servicing the higher end of the market and microfinance institutions (“MFIs”) servicing the poorest of the poor, there is a gap in providing financial services to unbanked and under-banked individuals and SMEs that fall between them – the Missing Middle.


Project Background
IA aims to fill out the SME financing gap in Africa. IA will be a crowdfunding platform that will raise funds to provide guarantee funds to banks and microfinance institutions providing loans to SMEs thus limiting their risks. By sharing the risk with them, Invest Africa intends to facilitate lending to this market and provide better conditions with lower interest rates. Invest Africa will raise these funds via a crowd funding platform accessible to worldwide investors. Invest Africa’s part of the financing will be in the form of loans that the local entrepreneurs will repay with interest. The remuneration will be based on a profit-sharing model since the interest rates will be distributed between the online investors and Invest Africa.
In addition, Invest Africa will offer business s support services (coaching, training and mentoring services) in partnership with local NGOs, business colleges and community centers.



Project Goals
The goal of this project is to build a new platform with the objectives below:

- Significantly increase traffic
- Increase conversion rate
- Visually appealing, strong branding, clear and easy to navigate platform
- Generate online investments, donations, memberships or volunteers
- Better search engine visibility


Target Audiences
New investors: potential investors will lend to the enterprises displayed on the platform. The local entrepreneurs will repay these loans plus interest by 1 to 3 years. The investors will receive regular updates on the evolution of the projects.

New donators: IA 501c3 status is pending. IA will be able to received tax-deductible donations.

New members: a membership program with an annual donation will be available: members will receive dedicated newsletters and invitation to members-only events

    Let's just say we're the classic case of a garage start up turned leaders of web innovation. <br><br>Literally, our founders started this outfit in the pre- first-dot-com-bubble boom (and bust) in a 3 sq. meter room with a single employee (part time, of course). <br><br>Many many websites and browser versions later Navigators is a leader today in web innovation. True to our catch line, we have re-invented ourselves over and over again to keep just a little ahead of our times. <br><br>From that single employee to 428 sharp, vivacious and vibrant web specialists today, we rule the roost of web development companies. So what's different? Everyone claims the same spot - but why do WE own it? <br><br>Ask our customers. <br><br>Citibank, Daimler Chrysler, Standard Chartered Bank, BOC, Ametek, Competir, the list goes on. We've worked in all 6 continents (its only a matter of time before we go to Mac Murdo Base in Antarctica) and have successfully delivered over 3000+ websites in 52+ countries.

    Reykjavík,  Iceland

    We spotted a split in the creative industry. It was boutique and beautiful, or massive scale and built for roll-out. Nothing in between. But why not both – beautiful, detailed, crafted creative on a global scale. Whatever the challenge, however big or small, people deserve great quality creative. So nothing leaves the studio until it’s properly presented. Nothing reaches our clients until it demonstrates our appreciation of detail. Our ideas and creativity help our clients live across different platforms. And they’re always ideas we can deliver. Rebrands, graphic design, film, photography and artwork, 3D, animation. All led by creative. All equally strong. By applying creative, critical thinking to these different channels, we change people’s perceptions and create the brands of the future. Design is solving problems. It’s about uncovering the challenge, having the idea, crafting the creative and delivering it properly. It’s the creativity that solves the problem, not the medium. WE BELIEVE IN CREATIVITY we’ll never lose our love of craft. Creativity leads everything we do. It always has and always will. But there’s strategy in our creative thinking. We build relationships with people. As our clients evolve, we help them to adapt by evolving with them, we learn new skills and grow our team.
