The Landscape for Impact Investing in East Africa

THE GLOBAL IMPACT INVESTING NETWORK AND OPEN CAPITAL ADVISORS July 29, 2015

The Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN), in partnership with Open Capital Advisors, published the full release of The Landscape for Impact Investing in East Africa, a “state of the market” analysis of the impact investing industry in the region. The most comprehensive study of impact investment activity in East Africa to date, the full report includes detailed chapters for five countries—Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, and Rwanda—plus chapters on six additional countries in the region.

The report analyzes an active impact investing market across East Africa. Development finance institutions (DFIs) are a significant player in the market, having deployed nearly $8 billion in impact capital to date. However, many other types of investors—including VC/PE funds, foundations, family offices, commercial banks, and angel investor networks—are increasingly active, with these non-DFI impact investors having deployed over $1.4 billion to date in the region through more than 550 deals.
