Getting us involved

We are currently looking for new projects to invest into and support through early-stage development. Projects must:

  • be within sub-Saharan Africa;
  • be within power, water or transport sectors;
  • have the potential to be commercially viable (with our support);
  • have a positive developmental impact on the communities they serve;
  • need InfraCo Africa to bring something additional, something that no other party can bring to the project; and
  • be developed in accordance with our Operating Policies and Procedures.

Our mandate is to mobilise and not displace private sector investment so we will not get involved in a project if it could attract all of the financing it requires from other private or DFI investors.

It is a simple two-step process

Step One – Initial Approval

Once you have provided us with the information we need to get started we will work with you to:

  • get a clear understanding of your proposed project: the technology, business model, financing and developmental impact
  • review the market, business and regulatory environment, etc.;
  • understand how you would like us to be involved;
  • present the project to our Investment Committee; and
  • if appropriate, sign a Memorandum of Understanding.

Typically this takes up to 3 months

Step Two – Due Diligence and Contracting

Once our Investment Committee have approved the project and allocated an initial budget we will work with you to:

  • confirm host government commitment and resourcing (if they are the customer / offtaker);
  • complete Know Your Customer (KYC) checks;
  • complete technical, legal, financial, environmental and social due diligence;
  • undertake market studies (if required);
  • present the project to our Investment Committee; and
  • if appropriate, sign a Joint Development Agreement or equivalent legally binding contract.

Typically this takes 3 to 6 months
