Webinar: First-time Fund Managers in Emerging Markets Bring a New Model to PE in Africa

Date: July 11th, 2017 

Speak to any capital provider and they will tell you the standard private equity model is not structurally sound for the African ecosystem – as evident by the too few deals, limited human capital to run portfolio companies, and constrained levers for liquidity events. So, can the Find-Fund-Support value chain be deconstructed to build a new model for investing in Africa?

In this webinar, four first-time fund managers will discuss how they tweaked different elements across the Find, Fund and Support value chain to create a new model for investment in Africa.
