We believe it is vital to state clearly to the world the set of our beliefs about Inclusive Capitalism. As such, we start with our Statement of Guiding Principles for Inclusive Capitalism. Knowing that words alone are not enough, each of us is making a series of commitments about how we will operate our institutions so that they help achieve Inclusive Capitalism. These commitments are forward-looking statements based on current goals, expectations and assumptions, which are not guarantees of future performance.

Summary

SDG Global will promote sustainable development by building a funding platform for Africa, to provide a safe, secure; transparent channel to encourage the flow of capital into by the end of 2022.

Objectives

Entrepreneurs and businesses in Africa have difficulty accessing capital, expertise and technology due to relatively undeveloped financial systems in the Continent, and investor fears about Africa. International investors, organisations and businesses have difficulty accessing the information they need to invest, and are deterred by insufficient disclosure and regulatory systems to meet their requirements, and a lack of liquidity and exit routes. We are creating a platform, meeting international disclosure requirements, thru which local and international investors can access, finance and trade investment opportunities in Africa, and African projects can access funding.

Metrics & Targets

Have at least one funding platform in Africa operational by the 2nd half of 2022 to help build businesses; fund projects promoting employment, entrepreneurship, sustainable development.
