Impact Capital Africa and the Zambian Development Agency have collaborated to create a new Zambian International Investment Forum (ZIIF) to focus on impact capital investment opportunities.
Previously known as the Zambia International Investment Forum, held at the Mulungushi International Conference Centre in 2016, Impact Capital Africa: Zambia now has a new look and scope, new partners and a new vision. The idea is not just that SMEs will link up with well-matched investors. A key indicator for measuring achievement will be the number and size of deals that are successfully brokered at the event.
Leading up to the event, SMEs who successfully register for the programme have an opportunity for support as they prepare for the conference. This business support takes the form of professional help — to comply with all necessary Government bodies, to understand the implications of having an external investor, and to create a ‘data room’ containing documents potential investors will be expecting as they consider each company. Qualifying SME’s will be required to pay just 25% of the cost of this professional help.
Who should apply:
The target SME group is established businesses looking for an investment of K500,000+. But smaller companies or start-ups are not excluded — their applications will be channelled to finding ‘angel investors’.
How to apply:
If you run an SME and are interested in participating in Impact Capital Africa: Zambia, you need to apply as soon as possible. Email Impact Africa or contact PEP Zambia (James Blewett or Deborah Worton) or ZDA (Jessica Chumba or Mukula Makasa).
