"OceanHub Africa consulted to the V&A Waterfront Marine and Industrial Division to conduct a strategic and financial due diligence on four Ocean Economy Projects. The quality of the work delivered was excellent and OceanHub Africa went above and beyond to find the required information and to apply rigorous financial and strategic analysis and package it in an easily communicable way. Would highly recommend OceanHub Africa for comparable consulting work."
