How it works
In a nutshell
The GET.invest Finance Catalyst links projects and companies to financiers. It targets small- and medium-scale sustainable energy opportunities in sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean and Pacific region. Our team provides advisory support in the areas of investment strategy, business case structuring, and accessing finance. We work through independent experts with extensive experience in both developing and getting projects funded.
Many of these projects and companies are challenging for financiers to engage in due to their relatively small investment size or new types of technologies and business models. Developers may lack the experience, networks or time to identify appropriate sources of finance, resulting in high transaction costs and few projects reaching financial close.
Accessing debt, equity and grants
Projects and businesses with strong underlying fundamentals can be supported to access debt and equity, possibly combined with grants, aiming to reach financial close. We work closely with other advisory and support programmes on the market to ensure that clients receive the most appropriate assistance for their case. You can find an overview of the cooperation partners in our Partners section.
Broad range of business models
We assists private-sector driven projects and companies. Our support covers the entire spectrum of decentralised renewable energy business models, with a proven track-record in wind, solar, hybrid, hydro, biomass and biogas projects.
