STRATEGIC INVESTMENT PARTNERS

Part of the Innovations Against Poverty (IAP) non-financial support is to provide the selected inclusive businesses (IBs) with the opportunity to connect with impact investors to successfully secure investments for their prospective growth and scale-up. IAP’s Strategic Investment Partners (SIPs) network- a network of 11 leading potential investors- will collaborate with the programme over the coming years to provide guidance and mentoring to assist the IBs to become investment ready, create opportunities for networking, knowledge sharing and co-investment synergies.
