Using catalytic capital to foster the emergence of African entrepreneurs in underserved markets

Investisseurs & Partenaires

To help illuminate when and how catalytic capital can be most effective and what additional tools impact investors need, the Catalytic Capital Consortium (C3) has dedicated learning grants to a group of selected funds and ecosystem players that address some of the world’s most pressing challenges and build knowledge and awareness on the use of catalytic capital.

Since its early days, I&P has used catalytic capital in different forms and for different project stages, taking high risks while accepting below-market returns. Through this report, I&P aims to make available the lessons it has learned from 20 years of experience in impact investing, in particular, from the use of catalytic tools. The conclusions of this report are notably supported by a unique financial/impact database of the over 255 African companies I&P has supported since its inception thanks to catalytic capital instruments. The database aims to reflect I&P’s experience and to share our vision and inform other impact investors willing to support African entrepreneurs.
