Our work

How we unlock potential by developing opportunity

Infrastructure development

Telecoms, renewable energy, ports and logistics are all areas where we have supported clients that are involved in creating the vital infrastructure that enables Africa’s economic and social development and prosperity

Sustainable agricultural development

Agricultural transformation and strengthening food systems will arguably do more than any other sector, to improve the lives of millions across the continent. We work across Africa and internationally to advance sustainable agricultural development and build resilient food systems that tackle hunger, increase incomes and improve livelihoods for millions of smallholder farmers and those working across the food supply chain from farm to fork

Financial inclusion and closing the digital divide

Africa has for a long time led the world in digital payments and internet access, but there are still huge opportunities to increase affordable financial inclusion levels and digitisation to lift up the millions who have been excluded from the benefits of mobile payments and easier access to digital services. We work with a number of commercial and development organisations to advance these transformational technologies across the continent

Empowering women and girls

We celebrate female economic empowerment enabled by our clients purpose driven investments and policy engagements with African governments and other actors that share common goals

ESG and sustainable development

We are developing suitability strategies and ESG led communications programmes to help our clients support the SDG goals through sustainable, equitable development and investment

Policy and regulatory reform

We work with clients to ensure their voice is heard at important policy making forums such as the UN Food Systems Summit or COP. We also support clients to engage with policymakers, regulators and UN agencies at multilateral, regional or national level to shape policy and regulation that advances progress towards SDG goals

Keeping ahead of opponents and competitors

We help organisations to be more resilient to attack from opposition groups and competitors. We ensure their impact is recognised as a force for good, supporting SDG goals, national and regional policy objectives, and creating improved prosperity for the many

Keeping investors and donors aware of opportunities and needs

We showcase the opportunities for investors in multinational corporations and disruptive digital challengers, as well as making the case for donor support for foundations and development finance institutions that address SDGs and support African governments’ economic and social policies
