We support your organisation to develop and
optimise your value proposition to attract finance. We work in partnership with
you based on performance – often no cure, no fee. We assist companies to access
impact finance: grants, concessional loans and social equity intended to create
positive change besides and beyond financial return. We connect impact investors to
investible businesses and support them improve the performance of their
portfolio by raising capital for their investees. And we assist NGOs to qualify
for grants for their private sector development programmes.
When you are looking for grant funding, we are here to support you. We have first-hand knowledge of grant opportunities that match your case.
Grant programmes target innovative and scalable projects with a high impact potential. Grants for private sector investment in developing countries usually require a substantial cash and/or in-kind contribution from the promoters.
Grant funding is financially attractive but comes with strict performance, reporting and accountability conditions. We provide support to help you comply with these requirements.
Equity & Debt
For a startup business, equity finance (venture capital) is often the only financing possibility. Equity investors generally seek a minority stake, preferring the entrepreneur to maintain the leading shareholding position.
More mature businesses may qualify for loans on concessional terms from impact funders.
Impact investors are looking for business cases that provide sustainable and scalable solutions to social and environmental challenges, aside from an attractive financial return.
We can connect you to our impact investment network to help finance your business. We help prepare your proposition and underlying business plan and assist you in negotiating a fair and mutually rewarding partnership with investors.
Climate change affects many of our clients and their suppliers, specifically in the agri-food sector. We help you acquire funding for climate mitigation and climate adaptation initiatives through proposal development, feasibility studies, financial analysis, and governance setup.
Carbon income can support climate mitigation and build communities’ resilience capacities for climate change. Together with our clients we explore possibilities to develop climate impact projects and earn income from carbon credits.
We help you design your project and obtain climate finance for its implementation, and provide
support throughout the carbon certification process.
