Company and Investment Profiles

Venture ForumCompany and Investment Profiles reflects a collection of investment introductions for businesses that have completed the South African Green Pioneer Acceleration Program (GPA) in June 2015.

This Accelerator was designed and implemented by Impact Amplifier, funded by Hivos and supported by VC4Africa and the Global Social Benefit Institute.
The Green Pioneer Accelerator was a comprehensive business accelerator that supported ecologically innovative enterprises. The four-month acceleration program was designed to take the selected businesses from ‘market proof’ to ‘ready for investment’. The program sought to position the participating companies for scale by getting their strategy, market access, financial model and investment case prepared for fundraising conversations with investors. This program combined a rigorous curriculum with practical experience shared by successful entrepreneurs, mentors and investors.
