Africa's Opportunities: Making Money and Delivering Impact - Session 4 of a Series


African private markets probably present the premier opportunity for investing to contribute to the UN's SDGs while also creating attractive financial returns. The potential for bringing solutions for the bottom billion, leveraging Africa's mobile infrastructure, is vast and being used by a lively and creative venture community with increasing numbers of later stage opportunities and the emergence of unicorns such as Zipline and Flutterwave. At the same time, larger buyout and growth equity opportunities in sectors such as agribusiness and related logistics, distribution, and financial services companies are creating the potential for delivering impact at scale. Impact potential includes improvements in ESG, job creation, waste reduction, and the benefits of their products, such as fertilizers and other agricultural inputs.
