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.
EEP Africa’s business development support enhances access to finance and increases project pipeline development by providing targeted, demand driven services to project developers, with a focus on building capacity, credibility and investment readiness. Support services include market studies and events, funding strategies, investment facilitation, coaching and marketing materials.
