Investment Support

EEP Africa improves the investment readiness of projects through targeted business support services and by facilitating linkages with the investor community. EEP Africa organizes semi-annual Investor Forums, an invitation-only matchmaking event offering investors access to a pipeline of investable clean energy projects.

Investor Forum

The EEP Africa Investor Forum brings global and regional investors together with clean energy businesses operating in Southern and East Africa. These events offer select investors access to a pre-screened pipeline of projects and provide developers with a unique opportunity to secure follow-on financing for successful projects and innovative business models. EEP Africa supports developers through customized coaching sessions and one-on-one meetings with representatives of venture capital, impact finance, private equity and development finance institutions.
