AVCA ESG Training Series - Impact and the SDGs in African PE and VC

In line with AVCA's commitment to educating Africa-focused private investment practitioners through comprehensive professional development programmes, we are launching the ESG Training Series to equip fund managers with practical tools and guidelines for applying ESG principles across the investment lifecycle to deliver returns and achieve impact.

Impact and the SDGs in African PE and VC



This session examines the development impact of private capital fund investments on economies and how these impacts contribute to the growth and development of countries in Africa. We will look at how to quantify and measure these impacts through the framework of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to better articulate how a private company contributes to the SDGs and how these contributions are aggregated at the fund level. Topics that will be addressed include why to invest in venture capital and private equity, the economic gains that can be achieved from these investments, and how to set impact targets, measure, and report using the SDGs as the unifying framework.

Facilitated by

  • Hany Assaad, Co-Founder and Chief Portfolio and Risk Officer
