March 19 - April 7

Nomination link: Click here

Deadline for Submission: 07-April-2024

Krutham has opened nominations for the Africa Impact Investment Awards 2024. These awards celebrate outstanding achievements within the impact investing sector in Africa and this year are sponsored by FirstRand. The awards are open to all participants in impact investments across asset classes and impact sectors operating anywhere in Africa.

In 2023, the awards received 75 nominations from 16 countries across the continent through our key partner
networks, including the African Venture Philanthropy Alliance, the African Private Capital Association, ANDE West
Africa, the East Africa Venture Capital Association, Impact Investing Ghana, the Impact Investing Institute, the GSG,
Impact Investing South Africa, the national advisory boards for impacting investing of both Nigeria and Zambia, the
Southern African Venture Capital and Private Equity Association, and the UNDP. Our panel of judges consisted of 13
stakeholders with deep impact investing expertise across the African continent, and Krutham announced 11 winners
at a virtual awards event in August 2023. Details of the inaugural awards – including case studies on the winners
can be found on the Krutham Africa Impact Investment Awards microsite.

The impact awards were conceptualised so as to develop a repository of demonstration cases for impact investing in
Africa. Africa faces deep developmental issues and, according to the latest OECD data, has a sustainable financing
gap of approximately USD 1.6 trillion until 2030. Impact investing has a critical role to play in crowding in private sector
investors to help fund groundbreaking solutions that achieve both a positive social or environmental impact and
generate a return on investment. These investment strategies contribute to development solutions in a sustainable
way, reducing over-reliance on aid while relieving pressure on government finances. Ultimately, the Africa Impact
Investment Awards seek to boost capital flows to Africa by recognising how organisations across the entire ecosystem
are innovating to achieve excellence in the rapidly growing field. Nominations close on 7 April 2024. Visit the KAIIA website or contact kaiia@krutham.com for more information.
