Working together

We believe that working together, as valued partners, is the best way to develop the infrastructure that sub-Saharan Africa needs.

Submit your project

Apply for funding

InfraCo Africa’s mandate is to mobilise and not displace private sector investment. We will not get involved in a project if it could attract the financing it requires from other private or DFI investors. Instead, we prioritise projects that have the potential to deliver a positive developmental impact and be commercially viable but need our risk capital and expertise to become bankable and attract private sector investment. We can also fund the expansion of innovative infrastructure businesses that need to rapidly scale-up to demonstrate commercial viability.

Whether we are committing early-stage risk capital and expertise at the beginning of a project or equity funding for construction, we will always first obtain approval from our Africa Investment Committee (AIC). Before submitting an investment to the AIC, InfraCo Africa will conduct a thorough due diligence of the project or business and its stakeholders.

A simple three-step process

Step 1

Engage

  • Receive a project proposal or identify an opportunity that meets our investment criteria;
  • Understand the technology, business model, financing and developmental impact;
  • Identify key risks, including health and safety, environmental and social;
  • Confirm government and community support, land ownership and project rights; and
  • Understand and secure approval to the key commercial terms of our involvement.

Typically takes between 3 to 6 months

Step 2

Explore

  • Complete technical, legal, financial, environmental and social due diligence (undertaking studies or site visits as required);
  • Get to know the key stakeholders and their aspirations for the project;
  • Complete Know Your Customer (KYC) and/or reputation checks for all significant parties;
  • Secure host government support and confirm resourcing (as required); and
  • Negotiate and secure approval to sign a Joint Development Agreement or equivalent.

Typically takes up to 6 months

Step 3

Commit

  • Commit funding to develop the project from our entry point to financial close and in some cases operations;
  • Regularly review progress against milestones and budgets, and mitigate or resolve potential issues;
  • Monitor environmental, social, health, safety and other good governance practices (including Anti-Bribery and Corruption); and
  • Source additional support and funding from across the PIDG, or externally as appropriate.

Variable, for the duration of our investment into a project.
