Inspired Evolution

Profile

Inspired Evolution established in 2007 is a trusted African climate impact investment advisory business now raising its third Evolution III fund targeting USD 400 million in commitments. Our Evolution funds mobilize much-needed private capital for supporting long-term, low-carbon and climate-resilient development pathways towards achieving net-zero goals for African countries.

As an award-winning ESG impact and climate investor in Africa, we are dedicated to three specialised climate-action investment themes: clean and sustainable energy infrastructure; energy access; and energy and resource efficiency growth investments – and the value chains that support them. Over the past 15 years, we have built a purpose-driven active private equity advisory business, delivering above benchmark returns to investors. Inspired Evolution offers a broad African footprint, having headquarters in Cape Town and strategically located international, regional and country offices in London, Nairobi, Abidjan and Grand Bay in Mauritius.

Our success has been the result of refining a set of core investment principles and competencies which underpin our active investment management approach. We offer over 200 years of collective track record with USD 310 million of assets under management, 21 portfolio investments with 16 exits, and have contributed to developing more than 2 GW of renewable energy generation mitigating more than 10.5 million tonnes of greenhouse gases to date.
