The African Venture Philanthropy Alliance on Mobilizing Capital in the Private Sector
In our latest episode, we talk with the Executive Director of the African Venture Philanthropy Alliance (AVPA), Frank Aswani. We discuss the AVPA model which is led by African impact investors, who are working together to increase their investments being made back into Africa. The APVA is a fairly new alliance that mirrors similar alliances we have seen in Asia, Europe, and Latin America.
“We are at that bridge between blending traditional development capital and private capital into a middle ground of impact investing that brings together blended finance for social investments” – Frank Aswani CEO AVPA
