The Africa Enterprise Challenge Fund (AECF) is a US$ 265 million private sector challenge fund that provides catalytic funding to enterprises in 24 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa. The fund supports innovative commercial businesses in the agribusiness, renewable energy and adaptation to climate change technology sectors with the aim of reducing rural poverty, promoting resilient rural communities and creating jobs through private sector development. We invest in businesses that are seen as “risky” and that struggle to meet traditional risk-return standards for commercial investors and which offer significant impact on poverty alleviation by creating jobs and sustainable incomes.
The AECF was launched at the World Economic Forum as an initiative of the Alliance for a Green Revolution in Africa (AGRA).
