Publication of the ESG and Impact reports of IPAE 1 and IPAE 2Submitted by Admin on Wed, 07/08/2020 - 12:49
Inaugurated in 2012, I&P Afrique Entrepreneurs 1 (IPAE 1) fund closed its investment period in 2017 with 29 African SMEs in its portfolio. The publication of this annual report, in a period of disinvestment, thus allows us to evaluate the main impacts of the fund and its portfolio companies, at a time when the successor fund I&P Afrique Entrepreneurs 2 (IPAE 2) is in its investment period. Launched in December 2017 and made up of seven portfolio companies to date, IPAE 2 aims to invest in equity and quasi-equity minority equity in 30 to 40 start-ups and companies located in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Indian Ocean, operating in diversified sectors.
The two funds aim for a significant financial return and high level social and environmental impacts, particularly in terms of extending the entrepreneurial base, the use of local sub-contracting, job creation, promotion of women's entrepreneurship, environmental protection, setting up in fragile countries, and so on.
