Launched: The growth and fundraising journeys of last mile distributors

25 May 2021 | Last week, the Global Distributors Collective, with support of UK Aid and GET.invest, published its research The growth and fundraising journeys of last mile distributors (LMDs).

Last Mile Distributors play a critical role in reaching remote populations with clean energy products. To reach their potential, more capital needs to flow into the LMD sector.

The new cutting-edge research explores the growth and fundraising journeys of 21 high-performing last mile distributors. Based on interviews with these last mile distributors from the GDC membership, the research considers:

  • What growth and impact look like in the last mile distributors sector;
  • What kind of capital is needed to support last mile distributors;
  • and what the barriers are for last mile distributors to accessing that capital.

The research was presented in April 2021 at the Last Mile Distribution Investor Forum.
