#5 Grant funding to Acre Impact Capital
When GuarantCo can’t directly fill a gap in an emerging market, it teams up with PIDG Technical Assistance to provide a grant to a company that can. By bridging these gaps and supporting new local champions, grant funding makes a real, tangible difference to people’s lives, and helps to improve essential infrastructure in lower income countries in Africa. A powerful example showcasing the impact of grant funding is GuarantCo’s and PIDG TA’s new partnership with The Rockefeller Foundation, who have teamed up to provide funding to Acre Impact Capital. This podcast includes contributions from: Angela Silva, grants and compliance manager at GuarantCo, Emilio Cattaneo, head of PIDG Technical Assistance and Hussein Sefian, founder and managing partner at Acre Impact Capital.
