“Given the growing interest in promoting private investment in African agriculture, IGD is focused on translating high-level commitments into commercially viable investments. It uses in-depth research and analysis of existing conditions to identify key investment gaps in priority agricultural value chains, and then works with agribusinesses, investors, and financial institutions, both African and multinational, to develop concrete investment concepts to address them.
IGD is working to help African and global companies connect and overcome mutual barriers to growth and expansion in new markets. Their strategy focuses on developing a network of respected, influential CEOs and senior executives with the interest and capacity to drive significant business growth in priority sectors. By recruiting and convening these business peers, sharing frontier market knowledge and insight, and facilitating business-driven development, we are catalyzing large-scale economic growth and opportunity that improves the lives of the poor.”
