The Mastercard Foundation, MEDA and a consortium of partners are preparing to launch a new Fund of Funds, investing in gender lens investment vehicles across Sub-Saharan Africa with a focus on first time and emerging fund managers.
The initiative will catalyze and accelerate the growth of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) across Africa, with the goal of creating work opportunities for young people – particularly young women – and building long-term economic resilience on the continent. The Fund of Funds will work with partners across the region to deliver access to capital and non-financial resources to support investment vehicles that have a high potential for job creation through their investment in entrepreneurs and emerging businesses. The initiative will also include a significant Business Development Services platform that will benefit both SMEs and investment vehicles.
Mennonite Economic Development Associates (MEDA) invites applications for a Deputy Chief of Party for an anticipated 5-year Impact Investment and Business Support Services initiative targeting medium to high growth SMEs in 7 countries in East and West Africa.
The project will be delivered through a consortium of partner organizations based in North America, Europe, and Africa.
