Investing in Climate Tech Innovation in Africa

The landscape of African climate ventures and investors

Over the past year, the Catalyst Fund has received more than 3,000 pitch decks from inspiring climate tech innovators seeking investment to grow their ventures in Africa. The Catalyst Fund analyzed this proprietary pipeline in combination with deal flow data from Africa: The Big Deal to assess the state of climate innovation on the continent.

This report includes insights into the sectors, technologies, target users, geographies, founder characteristics, funding trends, and exit paths of climate ventures in Africa. These insights are produced as part of a philanthropic effort to progress the climate resilience ecosystem with the support of FSD Africa, UNIDO, GEF, and JPMorgan Chase.
