Impact Capital Forum is excited to invite you to an interactive discussion, featuring impact investment fund managers and ecosystem builders raising and deploying impact capital across Sub-Saharan Africa.

With sub-saharan Africa accounting for half of global impact capital investments, there has never been a more exciting time for local African businesses and fund managers that are driving innovation to achieve measurable social impact, alongside financial returns.  This program will explore emerging trends in the post-pandemic impact investment sector on the continent and hear from practitioners on the ground in Senegal and South Africa about opportunities and challenges in achieving their capital raising and impact goals.

Agenda topics:

· What are the current drivers and bottlenecks affecting impact finance flows in sub-Saharan Africa?

· Has the Covid-19 pandemic shifted priorities? 

· What are the key sectors fueling this growth: financial inclusion, renewable energy, agribusiness, support to youth and women-led businesses, other?

· How key are Public/ private partnerships in supporting the growth of these sectors?

· What are the challenges on the ground for individual investors and social entrepreneurs alike?

· How can you get involved?
