Introducing InfraCo Africa

InfraCo Africa seeks to alleviate poverty by mobilising investment into sub-Saharan infrastructure projects:

  • Investing directly into early-stage projects which need the financial commitment and support that InfraCo Africa can bring
  • Funding experienced teams to provide project development leadership
  • Providing equity to close a financing gap and start construction
  • Investing into innovative solutions that need our support to scale-up or to pilot new products or enter new markets

InfraCo Africa’s support reduces risks and costs, and ensures that projects are developed to the highest standards: from a concept, to a financeable investment opportunity, to a proven operating business.

InfraCo Africa is part of the Private Infrastructure Development Group (PIDG): it is managed as a private company although funded by governments in the UK (FCDO), the Netherlands (DGIS) and Switzerland (SECO). Since its establishment in 2004, InfraCo Africa has developed thirteen projects through to Financial Close. Of these, it has successfully exited four projects and is overseeing the construction and operation of the remainder.

InfraCo Africa’s projects will improve living standards and power economic growth in sub-Saharan Africa.
