Investment from the private sector and donor countries can boost growth in Africa, and is key to recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic. However, high risk and slow returns often discourage potential investors. An Accelerator Hub would act as a one stop shop to help local businesses and institutions in Africa develop financially viable proposals, and connect them with investors. The EU can play a vital role in funding and establishing the Hub, drawing on its own experience in supporting investment across the continent. Learn more at CGDev.org/AcceleratorHub.
