The mission of the AlphaJiri investment fund is to contribute to the sustainable development of Sub-Saharan Africa, with an emphasis on Food and Energy.
The AlphaJiri investment fund's theory of change is predicated on the vast opportunity to preserve the environment and substitute fossil fuels by promoting renewable energy solutions in Sub-Saharan Africa. AlphaJiri's transformational impact will be bolstered by the fund's further emphasis on sustainable agriculture that is resilient to climate change, the local transformation of primary goods into finished consumer products, and a more efficient value chain from farm to fork.
The AlphaJiri investment fund's strategy will encompass private debt, mezzanine and venture capital instruments to help innovative and sustainable Small - and Medium - Enterprises achieve profitability and scale domestically or even across borders. AlphaJiri will deploy its seed capital over a period of 3 years, from 2020 to 2022, with a pan-African scope and the emphasis on sustainable food and renewable energy solutions. AlphaJiri will also facilitate direct co-investments for its LPs, thereby leveraging its portfolio to catalyse a greater private-sector mobilisation for the Sustainable Development Goals.
