Access to accurate data on existing private sector investments is a key constraint to various organizations wanting to invest more or to take other actions. In light of this Impact Investing Ghana is leading a collaborative project with input from other key organizations in the ecosystem namely; Private Enterprise Federation, GEA (formerly NBSSI), Chamber of Corporate Trustees of Ghana, Ghana Securities Industry Association, Venture Capital Trust Fund, NEIP, Social Enterprise Ghana, Design Thinking Ghana, Ghana Hubs Network and Ghana Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (GVCA) to create an impact investing ecosystem map and to track the evolution of the ecosystem, gaps and strategic initiatives over time. This collaboration is beginning with a baseline ecosystem map to be finalized by the end of March 2022. The second phase of the project will comprise market sizing research to add more information to the map.
IIGh, its partners and media partner Citi are partnering to launch the Ghana Impact Investing Ecosystem Report and drive dialogue on what action is needed in Ghana to unlock up to $2 billion in private sector funding for the country to achieve the SDGs on “The State of Impact Investing in Ghana: Unlocking private sector capital for profit and impact” on Wednesday 23rd March 2022 from 10 am to 11.30 am GMT.
The goal is to share what the data shows needed to happen for Ghana to generate the funding it needs from the private sector to fuel its development. Impact Investing Ghana has a goal of driving collaboration to significantly increase private sector funding for development. The report and forum will set the stage for this action to begin as we work together to build a more prosperous Ghana.
The question on the minds of ordinary Ghanaians is, can the private sector really support financing for development? What have been the constraints that have prevented this from happening in the past and what private-sector action could bring about change? How can the private sector be part of the action that leads to positive outcomes? It is these questions that this Report Launch seeks to address.
