– How to integrated the Impact Measurement and Management system;
– How to raise capital from VC/PE (Impact Investors)

In addition to these 4IP Group advisory services (ESG Toolkit), we also have our own Tech Impact Venture Capital Fund, and we can share our own portfolio management experience with our own investees (mostly tech ventures) and what kind of due diligence questions (both financial and non-financial) questions we as ask the founders in our search for innovative, scalable and disruptive business models.
Its my mission to help create awareness about Impact Investment on the African continent.
On this background I consider myself as a market builder, creating a new impact investment economy.
I have myself benefited from the lessons learned from one of the pioneering market builders in South East Asia Professor Dureen Shahnaz and I want to share this knowledge and insights with aspiring and ambitious impact/social enterprise founders wishing to solve Africa’s SDG challenges – seen as great business opportunities just waiting to be captured and solved by ingenious innovative entrepreneurs.
Together we can make the 21st Century Africa’s century through entrepreneurship and innovation.
