Capital Raising (Financial brokerage/fund intermediation)
The Agribusiness start-up ecosystem requires help with project preparation and raising capital, especially through blended finance, in order to launch new projects. The minimum capital requirement for green fields is estimated to be $2 billion per year. To facilitate this process, we offer digital platforms such as deal rooms and project preparation facilities to source and screen investment opportunities that are then matched with investors and funders. This allows project promoters to easily secure the capital they need to support their business start-ups or expansion projects. Our services are specifically targeted towards project promoters.
