Gaia Impact Fund
Gaia Impact Fund is a venture capital firm supporting the energy transition of emerging countries, created in 2017 by a team of seasoned entrepreneurs and impact investors. We’ve invested and built long-term partnerships with 12 start-ups and SMEs operating in Sub-Saharan Africa and South-East Asia with a strong environmental and social focus.
Recent technological innovations have turned decentralized production and distribution of renewable energy into a competitive and inclusive alternative to carbon energy. In regions where access to the power grid is expensive or unreliable, we support businesses enabling sustainable and affordable energy provision to local communities. In regions where energy mixes are highly carbonized, we support technological innovations and business models enabling a cost-efficient diffusion of renewable energy on a large scale.
Capitalizing on the trackrecord of our first fund, we are teaming up with Investisseurs & Partenaires, pioneer of the African private equity industry with a dense network of 10 local offices across the continent, and Capital Croissance, a French entrepreneurial private equity specialist, to launch a 70M€ PE Impact Fund dedicated to energy access and renewable energy startups in Sub-Saharan Africa.
