GIF is a unique hybrid investment fund that supports the piloting, rigorous testing, and scaling of innovations targeted at improving the lives of the poorest people in developing countries. Through our investments, we support a portfolio of innovations that collectively open up opportunities and improve the lives of millions of people across the developing world. We support innovators at all stages of development. Through grants, loans (including convertible debt), and equity investments ranging from $50,000 to $15 million, we back innovations with the potential for social impact at a large scale, whether they are new business models, policy practices, technologies, behavioural insights, or new ways of delivering products and services that benefit the poor in developing countries.
Mango Fund promotes economic development in emerging economies by providing financial and business consulting services to experienced and growth-oriented entrepreneurs. Perform value addition activities mainly in manufacturing, agro-processing, and technical farming, but other sectors are welcome to apply. Engage with technology to provide skilled employment – we like social impact, especially job creation.
SME Impact Fund leverages the relationship between SMEs and smallholder farmers to channel funding needs. The Fund provides loans, skills and knowledge to small and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) in agricultural value chains.
Launched in 2015, the Tony Elumelu Foundation Entrepreneurship Programme is the largest African philanthropic initiative committed to empowering African entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship on the continent.
Great importance is attributed by AATIF to promoting investments along the entire agricultural value chain. The fund will strive to improve agricultural practices to increase crop yields or assist in building storage and processing capacity to broaden local value addition.
