Promoting the number & effectiveness of intermediaries
to facilitate access to impact capital
Intermediary Working Group
The intermediation of impact capital working group identified the priority challenges of weak intermediation actors that cannot efficiently support the market’s needs, and a lack of understanding/limited knowledge of the Impact Investing ecosystem, especially in the Nigerian context. Based on this it recommended promoting effective intermediaries to facilitate access to capital.
Intermediaries include financial and non-financial actors such as banks, crowdfunding, financial advisors, venture capitalist/private equity fund managers, business development service providers (BDSPs), educational institutions, accelerators, incubators, business hubs, consultants, and technical assistant facilities to support the growth of the impact investing market and create linkages between investors and investee companies to facilitate investments.
