Strengthening the Investment Pipeline

Global Alliance Africa is a six-year project designed to strengthen and scale local innovation and business environments in Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa. Strengthening the Investment Pipeline is one of four interventions for this programme.

Lack of access to finance can be a major barrier to innovation. Often this has less to do with lack of funding, and more to do with visibility and understanding between sources of funding and innovators seeking that funding.

Our Strengthening the Investment Pipeline intervention will work to improve mutual understanding of needs and opportunities between investor and innovator communities through a combination of community and capacity building, upskilling innovation support and match-making activities.
