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