Impact investing is a young but rapidly growing industry and during the last couple of years we have identified a number of different impact investing / funds in and outside Africa, offering finance and impact capital for businesses and organisations, doing sustainable business in Africa.

At this workshop we will:
- Give an overview of the different impact investment / funding opportunities in Africa
