The British Chamber, in association with the Private Enterprise Programme, will be holding an event on Impact Investment, in advance of the Impact Capital Africa conference in October. The idea behind the event is to familiarise those attending with Impact Investment - what it is, how it differs from normal investment channels, its current state in Zambia and development in other countries. The Zambian impact investment ecosystem is relatively nascent compared to other countries in the region, however the opportunities to grow the economy through impact investment are vast based on past investment deals involving Zambian companies. Through an interactive panel discussion, the event will: De-mystify impact investment; What is impact investment? How is it different from conventional investment? Explore impact investment at a global and regional level Explore Zambia’s experience with impact investment. Highlight the successes, challenges and opportunities for impact investment in Zambia. The panel will comprise Basil Nundwe - Inside Capital, Monica Musonda - Java Foods and Sven Haefner - 30Thirty Capital. Clive Shamwana as the moderator. Please confirm your attendance by email by 10th September.

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). For more information visit the website below.
