The start-up sector in Europe is booming. 60 percent of investors take ESG criteria into account when investing. This emphasizes the strong trend toward impact investing and that profit does not exclude impact. This trend is mirrored in Africa’s neighboring continent, as shown through the article series on “Entrepreneurship in Africa” by brand eins. Venture development in Africa has peaked, and the chances and needs for further investments are enormous. This reveals many opportunities, also for international investors. As the impact of creating new business in African markets is substantial, creating new enterprises in Africa can also fulfill investors’ thirst for effects.
Together with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and brand eins, we highlighted best practices of young African companies such as Lori Systems to set the scene for the dialogue on opportunities and challenges of impactful investments in Africa: Why Europeans should invest now? How should and could investors be supported in this endeavor? What are the challenges investors are facing? What can be done to facilitate investments in Africa? Where are most business opportunities? What are African ventures’ needs?
