Africa50-Project Development (PD) is a partner of choice for developers of projects in energy, transports, water and ICT.

Africa50 is a partner of choice for developers of large scale infrastructure projects. Our main products are risk capital instruments during the project development phase and equity investments in fully developed or operational projects, both of which are provided on commercial terms. 

The development phase can include feasibility studies, environmental and social studies, permitting, financial modeling, and contract and lender negotiations. The mandate of the Africa50 Project Development company is to act as a strategic minority partner that can provide support for project development. It can invest up to $10 million until financial close, typically under a Joint Development Agreement.  

Our second investment vehicle, the Africa50 Project Finance company, can invest in projects at financial close or once they are operational. Its mandate is to act as a strategic minority investor, with equity tickets of up to $80 million.

Africa is simply tired of being in the dark. It is time to take decisive action and turn around this narrative: to light up and power Africa – and accelerate the pace of economic transformation, unlock the potential of businesses, and drive much needed industrialization to create jobs.

Dr Akinwumi Adesina, Chairman of Africa 50 and President of the African Development Bank Group
