Situation

One of the only private equity funds active in an East African post-conflict country required support to scale operations and plan future capital raises.

The fund had already made promising investments, but required a new, robust strategy to expand pipeline and develop streamlined risk assessment practices. The goal was to expand its capital base by 10x in 5 years and prove the viability of the post-conflict country.


Our Approach

  1. Performed detailed review of fund operations including assessment of processes from pipeline through disbursement and overall strategy
  2. Conducted strategic planning to review operational changes that would increase efficiency, enable deployment of more capital
  3. Developed new growth plan including detailed fund financial model and related strategic plan
  4. Created investor presentation to communicate new strategy for next round of fundraising

Outcome

Based on our strategic planning exercise, we created a new growth plan and important operational changes that included a “fast-track” investment review process and new milestones for business development.

The Board approved this new approach and began an investor process which expanded available capital, based on the documents we prepared.
